I was going to slow down posting anyway, and then my Linksys router got fried (thanks to a firmware update I got from Linksys, no less) so going online has been a lot more difficult of late.  Nonetheless, I had to put this link up for you: Freedoms Curtailed in the Defense of Liberty (The Onion).  The truly scary part is that the article isn’t much of an exaggeration over what I’ve been hearing both on the news and on the street.  As an example, someone said on a newsgroup recently about some peace protestors, “Now THOSE people scare me.  Really.”  American citizens peacefully exercising their freedom of speech to oppose violence in the world and support nonmilitary solutions is scary?

Scary.
