Some good, Some bad

Today, we finally see positive results for internet user rights because a Senate committee has struck down House amendments to the upcomming telecommunications legislation. Michael Wiesman of the Seattle Times provides a good explanation of why this law is so important.

On a completely different note, over the last several days have seen interesting developments in the seemingly age old conflict between Isreal and Palistine. It started with Isreal massing troops and getting ready to attempt a rescue of a a kidnapped soldier, followed by the attempt. Then, heretofore unconfirmed counter attack by a militant group. Today, Isreal took more more direct military action. The most interesting part of this debacle is the lack of any kind of comment by the Bush administration, or other nations that support Isreal. A while ago, I commented in a post that this conflict and the rise of a Hammas government could result in the third world war. I guess we will just have to wait and see.

Something to make you physically ill.
