Sopa, Pipa and the Wednesday Blackout

I'm sure y'all know about Sopa and Pipa. I'm sad to say that one of Vermont's Senators, Pat Leahy, was behind these from the beginning.

President Obama has already said he won't sign it. It has too broad powers for him. I'm relieved to hear that. It's too close to censorship to me also, and in support of the Wednesday Blackout, I won't be posting. There won't be Wiki or Reddit to source tomorrow; so anything you want from them, do it tonight or wait til Thursday.

In solidarity, and see you Thursday,
Laura

Gary- Solidarity, brother. This is simply unacceptable.

Lisa- We're in scary times. I don't blog about the truly wet-your-pants-things I read about.

I'll go look before the web starts blackout!

Extremely scary....it will be lights out here from around midnight tonight until around noon on thursday. I wonder, COULD we live without the internet? I'd like to think I can.
