Well, I’ll take that as a clue

No one cares that I have spiffy new sunglasses and found a great pork recipe for dinner. (FYI, it was amazing.) All you want to do is argue over politics.

Luckily it looks like there’s still enough of a draw to keep local, state, and national news in the mix. (Whew! Sticking to only one would become a little tedious.) I guess that’s what I’ll do for a while. Hits are stronger than ever, so something must be working.

If anyone else would like a little variety after a while, please say so. Until then, we’ll trudge on.

  1. If you don’t want to talk politics, how about blogging?

    I read this article in slate concerning a legal case about linking. It this, “In another example of an effort to stop linking, a city lawyer in Sheboygan, Wis., demanded that blogger (and political critic) Jennifer Reisinger remove from her site a link to the police department. Reisinger has sued various city officials for violating her First Amendment free speech rights. Her case is pending in federal district court in Wisconsin.”

    What’s the story with this?

  2. Randy in Richmond says:

    Boy, does Hooters have gooood wings.

  3. Jeremy, that’s interesting! I’ll give it a look this week.

  4. Jeremy, I read it through. It sure sounds like a judge was doing some attorney buddies a favor with that ruling. Still, links were allowed, just not using the company’s name as an anchor.

    What I found more interesting was this:

    Last December, neighborhood news site Gatehouse Media sued the New York Times Co. for posting Gatehouse headlines and first sentences on Boston.com, which the Times owns. Gatehouse mainly complained that Boston.com violated the Gatehouse copyright. That case, too, settled, when the Times Co. agreed to stop publishing Gatehouse headlines and openings. Digital rights advocates weren’t happy about that. But the case was mainly about whether Boston.com’s use of the Gatehouse words was a “fair use” of copyrighted material, not the broader right to link.

    That’s been my argument against David Mastio for ages. I e-mailed him a copy of the settled agreement. 🙂
