“The real strength of any man is knowing his own limitations and you will never be powerful if you don’t know what your Kryptonite is.” - T.D. Jakes (He's black!)
All of a sudden, I realize that is probably what occurred. Well, if they decide to go on the war path, I recommend they follow these regulations:
Militia combatants must observe the following protocols:
(a) that of being commanded by a person responsible for his
(b) that of having a fixed distinctive sign recognizable at a
(c) that of carrying arms openly;
(d) that of conducting their operations in accordance with the laws
and customs of war.
This came from John Little of Blogs of War:
Will Reed envisions a mouse in every house — computers, that is — and high-speed Internet connections for all. A wired community, he says, is an empowered one.
From his nonprofit group’s East End offices, Reed is turning his vision into a reality. Although Pecan Park neighborhood residents may not realize it, e-mail, pictures and commerce now zip above their tree-lined streets. This high-speed, wireless Internet access is free for the taking.
Reed’s organization, Technology for All, has pioneered this program to bridge the digital divide with help from Rice University and an enthusiastic Mayor Bill White, who has asked city libraries to join the effort. This small, wired neighborhood may eventually become a model for providing everyone in the city free, or low-cost, Internet access.
Rep. Phil King, R-Weatherford, has filed a massive telecommunications bill in Austin this session that, in part, bans Texas cities from participating in wireless information networks.
- Eric Berger @ Houston Chronicle
These are exactly the types of programs that Phil King should be championing. Programs that would significantly benefit the poor members of his district. You know that this jackass didn’t cook up this idea on his own. I wonder how much telecom/broadband provider money he’s receiving?

The more thoughtful historians will echo this article one day. Already, Regan's becoming the hero of the Cold War, even in the historical hardcovers rolling off the CNN and Time presses. The skeptics are already losing.
