Special post for Wednesday, Jan 18, 2012

rogersgeorge on January 18th, 2012

I’m not sure how to turn this blog off, or back on again, so this is my version of going dark to support the cause opposing the SOPA and PIPA bills. I think the bills and their ilk are the product of two special interests: media industries that (IMO wrongly) fear financial loss and loss of control, and “security” interests who want to monitor and control the distribution of opinions in what amounts to limitation of free speech. I happen to think the bill is unworkable, but that’s another issue.







Please don’t read any of the rest of my site today. I hope you feel some sense of loss at not getting your daily dose of curmudgeonly grammar, which is my choice of free speech.
