Readers attempting to visit this blog yesterday discovered that it did not exist. I hope I caused no undue alarm, but I pulled the Society of Torch, Pole and Rope down in support of the boycott against SOPA and PIPA. I figured my readership is smart enough to twig to that and no clarification was necessary, especially once the Society reappeared after midnight. As it turns out, the blackout was successful in demonstrating that many are unwilling to let corporate interests curtail the Internet and several of the legislations’ sponsors withdrew their support of the bills. I guess an election year was the wrong time to try and muscle these bills through.
We now return to your regularly scheduled, non-political programming.
