I've been posting so much on politics here lately, that I'm considering creating a seperate blog for those posts! Actually, I've got a WordPress.com blog that isn't really being used, plus my personal space over at Green Apple, so I'd probably use one of those before launching something new.

At any rate, here's another political post.

FireHatch.com is a site dedicated to the goal of unseating incument Orrin Hatch in November elections. From the site:
Hatch is as bad as it gets when it comes to shafting the public on copyright and technology policy. This is the guy who wants Hollywood's hackers to blow up computers that are used for unauthorized downloading. He championed a policy that authorizes jail time for sharing a single song on the Internet. Hatch also wrote 2004's ill-fated INDUCE Act. All of this support for Hollywood cartels might seem strange coming from a Utah Senator, but then you notice that entertainment companies have given Hatch hundreds of thousands of dollars.
