Joel Klein, Anti-Trust Chief

— NPR's Madeleine Brand reports on Joel Klein, the chief of the Justice Department's anti-trust division. Klein is at the center of the government's case against Microsoft, whose operating system runs some 90% of the world's computers. Some observers question whether Klein is aggressive enough to be an anti-trust enforcer. As acting chief of the division, he approved a merger between Bell Atlantic and NYNEX, giving the company control of the local telephone market from North Carolina to Maine.
