< br />Author and attorney Philip K. Howard is at the forefront of legal reform and the fight against government micromanagement. His latest book, "Try Common Sense: Replacing the Failed Ideologies of Right and Left," takes aim at the bloated bureaucracies of both parties and proposes a practical government that allows Americans to live WITHOUT all the red tape.

From teachers burdened with paperwork to men afraid to mentor, our regulations need a massive overhaul.
