Tip of the Hat, Wag of the Finger

Cheers to Florida (how often do you say that in this day and age) for disbarring shyster Jack Thompson.  Thompson is infamous for heading up obscenity cases against 2 Live Crew, Howard Stern, Doom, Grand Theft Auto.  Couldn’t happen to a nicer guy.

But in order for their to be the proper balance in the universe something rediculous had to happen today.  And so the Senate unanimously approved the creation of a cabinet level copyright czar, similar to the drug czar (and we all know how well that’s worked).  Can a copyright war be far away?  At least they rejected the proposal that would have forced the Justice Department to lead crusades on the behalf of copyright holders so they weren’t toally nuts.
