In a surprising display of backwards-thinking loyalty to his fundamentalist and fat-cat brethren, George Bush has just signed the Family Entertainment and Copyright Act Legislation. This law will allow content filtering companies to operate without threat of being sued into oblivion by selling filters which remove  "questionable" and "objectionable" material from films. It also makes video recording of movies in a theater a crime worthy of jail time (because we don't have enough people in prison for bullshit offenses yet).

I hope the fact that the backronym stands for F.E.C.A.L. has not escaped you. The only good thing this bill did was permit the Library of Congress to resume archiving movies and home videos without fear of getting sued into oblivion.

Also, Bill Gates became The Riddler for five seconds at a press conference today.

"You've obviously never taken a class in postmodernism. If you carefully deconstruct the events, you'd be able to see past the obvious and get to the essence of the real story. is the loopback address. Loopback is simply a synonym for "myself." Our antihero protagonist was therefore attacked by himself. His reactions, however, show that he was unaware this was a self referential occurence. He is clearly blocking that knowledge from his conscious. It seems likely that he is therefore suffering from Dissociative Identity Disorder, formerly known as Multiple Personality Disorder. This is a fascinating psychological study of the protagonist as antagonist. And you completely missed it."
