Quote of the Moment
"I believe that fascism is about abandoning your personal responsibility to the group or to society. You say 'In unity there is strength,' which inevitably will become 'In uniformity there is strength.' It's better if those sticks are the same size and length, because then they'll make a tidier bundle, which consequently leads to the kind of fascism that we saw in the '30s and '40s."
--Alan Moore, interview with the Onion's AV Club

Bad Law of the Moment
"However, under the proposed law, skipping any commercials or promotional announcements would be prohibited."
--Wired on HR2391, the "Intellectual Property Protection Act". Jeez...do you think this would mean skipping the previews that are at the head of some DVDs and VHS tapes would be illegal?
