Net Neutrality Explained by a 9-Year-Old is the Best Definition Yet

There's been a lot of talk lately about something called "net neutrality." It's something that's easy to understand, but hard to explain. Kind of like telling someone what "harmony" is. If you know what it is, you know what it is, but damned if you can explain it.
