The Day After

In the wake of the “blackout” against SOPA/PIPA, various House and Senate members have jumped ship, and are no longer supporting the bill. ‘Reason’ has a good article concerning the issue.

It would be tempting to suppose that Washington has heard the cries of the people, and decided to actually represent them. The more likely explanation is they heard the cries of the wealthy and influential opposition.

Good news for now, but it’s hardly over and done.
