    So many people showed up at the King County Board of Health meeting Thursday that they couldn’t fit inside the council chambers—not even close. They lined the walls and spilled into the hallway, pacing and murmuring, clutching their comment-card numbers, and waiting in a long, messy line to squeeze in.

    In 2015, net neutrality advocates celebrated what seemed to be the final step in ensuring an open internet when the Federal Communications Commission officially reclassified broadband internet service as a public utility, just like telephone lines. But the celebration has been short-lived. Soon after the Trump administration entered the White House, the FCC’s new Chairman Ajit Pai announced that he would seek to reverse his predecessor’s efforts, and instead pursue “a light-touch regulator...
