Ted Stevens to Tie Your Tubes
Ted Stevens has a brand new bag: censoring your series of tubes.
Early in January, Stevens introduced Senate bill 49, which among other things, would require that any school or library that gets federal Internet subsidies would have to block access to interactive Web sites, including social networking sites, and possibly blogs as well. It appears that the definition of those sites is so vague that it could include sites such as Wikipedia, according to commentators. It would certainly ban MySpace.
While we're all in favor of banning MySpace too, we think the Wikipedia bit is just sour grapes.
