From the Mailbox:
Saving the Internet

I received this request from Move On yesterday to post a link to this in my blog. I agree with the message so I'm spreading the word as best I can. Plus the video is hilarious! I had no idea that Moby was such a funny guy! My favorite part is where he hugs the tree.

Here's a blurb I stole from Move On that explains it pretty well:

"Congress is now pushing a law that would end the free and open Internet as we know it. Internet providers like AT&T and Verizon are lobbying Congress hard to gut Network Neutrality, the Internet's First Amendment and the key to Internet freedom. Net Neutrality prevents AT&T from choosing which websites open most easily for you based on which site pays AT&T more. So Amazon doesn't have to outbid Barnes & Noble for the right to work more properly on your computer.

Many members of Congress take campaign contributions from these companies, and they don't think the public are paying attention to this issue. Let's show them we care - please sign this petition today."

At some point I'll have to do a post on All Of The Ways In Which I Am Not As Crunchy Granola As I Would Like To Be (ahem) but not today. Suffice to say I've been an at&t customer for more years then I'd care to admit and although I love the reliable service, I do think it might be prudent to move over to Working Assets. I wonder if they're still giving away Ben & Jerry's? and what if I want to call Canada? Tell you what, I'll check it out and get back to you.

On a lighter note it should be pointed out that we all seem to have survived another 6/6/06. Of course they had a big party in Hell, Michigan. So, how was your Day of The Beast?
