David King and Joe Schallan have a point, that there's no point in
darkening pages and exascerbate the problem. I had time yesterday to surf
the net looking for things and the number of black pages had a powerful
effect on me. The far reaching consequences of the legislation became a
dramatic reality, and I realized too that the objections to the
legislation are widespread.
For months I've gotten messages from concerned net people asking
us all to contact our senators, congressmen, the president, etc. to speak
up against the bill. The letters were from a group of very informed long
time, almost professional net people. It sounded very specialized to me.
Yesterday reality set it, and the extent of the damage was drmatically
demonstrated by the number of black pages. It made me profoundly sad to
realize what was happening. This is a new medium and it was hard for me
to grasp the reality of the threat. Until yesterday.
