Pygmy Followup

2:50 PM -- Today, Yahoo Inc. (Nasdaq: YHOO) settled a lawsuit with the two jailed Chinese journalists, the ones whose plight put Yahoo execs in front of Congress last week.

It's a nice gesture. Nicer still would be a pledge that Yahoo won't do it next time, but I don't expect to see that.

Meanwhile, a San Jose Mercury columnist points out, rightfully so, that Congress shouldn't be so smug about the Yahoo case.

On a less serious note, I was wondering whether anyone would challenge the use of the word "pygmy" in this whole discussion.
