Blog Bless America

As much as I can shake my fist about current political problems here, reading this made me so thankful I live in a country with a constitution that protects free speech. India has banned access to all the blogs that use several popular blogging platforms, including Blogger and type pad. Apparently they did this because suspected villains used blogs to coordinate the recent Mumbai train bombings. (I love the word “villains.”)
Granted, the present regime in the U.S. has taken their power to a seriously annoying (and illegal) level by preying on fear, vis-a-vis all the listening in on private conversations, etc. (I also love the word “vis-a-vis.”) But at least we’re still clinging onto some form of checks and balances, and free speech for the most part still prevails. When all is said and done, the U.S.A. really is still the freeest (that can’t be the correct spelling, can it?) country in the world.

    I appreciate your love of the word “villains” whilst discussing terror bombings. You insensitive little bung-hole.
