Media Potluck for the Day...

Keeping with the tradition of posting news about the current state of copyright law, this link goes to a scathing examination of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA).

With this week being a rough start to the fourth year of American military operations in Iraq, the President had interesting things to say at his press conference today. I think the most interesting statement from this article was that he would not have sent troops to Iraq if he thought the operation would fail. Conversely, the President also pointed out today that waging the war is costing him political capital. I try to retain my sarcasm at this statement but appreciate that he is owning up to the fact that this may not have been a good idea. I won't put words in his mouth, but essentially, he finally recognizes in uncertain terms that not all the American people are on board with his policy on Iraq. Maybe its the recent down turn in his approval rating that is the driving force behind these statements. However, we must put these numbers into perspective.

Does anyone else think this was a bas idea? Do we want to let sex offenders go? Maybe I have been working in a prosecutor's office for too long.

Site stuff: Traffic on Sunday was terrific for this site. Any comments from new visitors regarding the page layout, color scheme, or substance? The Grey Area is a bit spartan right now, I am looking for ideas to spice things up a bit.
