Jun. 4th, 2003

I often feel somehow a little embarrassed, like at voting time for Working Assets (the time at the end of the year when Holly and I have long discussions about which percentage to vote to which charities benefitting from profits at Working Assets long distance), that one of the most important political issues for me is public access to and diversity of ownership of mass media. It doesn't seem as urgent or important to humanity as many other concerns of the left, or the workers, or advocates of human rights. I am finally starting to feel less silly for this particular passion, though, as the fight against and reaction to recent FCC rules changes have brought broad attention to the matter and raised the hackles of more people. (And, hey, the only good thing about the increasingly tight grip of the corporatocracy is the correspondingly increasing likelihood of a serious revolution against it.)

Here's a good editiorial from the (Madison) Capital Times with an optimistic ending:

FCC Vetoes Public Interest


Of course, if they succeed in using terrorism to get control of the internet (in addition to the ridiculous level of poop they can get on users now), we're in big trouble.
 
I'm not unhappy with this quiz result. I've always liked Eleanor. And---hey---she may have been ugly, but word is she got laid plenty.
