The Repuglican neoconservative movement has thus far been a "cash-cow" for their devoted followers. It is amazing to watch these opportunists who realized riches beyond expectations now trying to salvage the gift that kept on giving!!!

MS. SMITH GOES TO WASHINGTON
 
BuzzFlash,
 
PC World knows what's going on with Internet radio, and they have a copy of the bill available. We will probably be fighting off people forever trying to ruin the Internet because of what it is. I like to see mags like this one, which probably has a very large audience, bring awareness to this bill.
