Section 220 of S. 1, the lobbying reform bill before the Senate, would require grassroots causes, even bloggers, who communicate to 500 or more members of the public on policy matters, to register and report quarterly to Congress, as lobbyists are required. (Emphasis mine)
Seriously? People who speak to the public must report? Please, friends, explain the point behind this. I'm willing to accept that this isn't the blatant attack on the 1st Amendment that on the face of it it appears to be, but it will take some convincing. Get to work.
Luckily I have only had 647 visitors since August, so I'm in no danger from Congress. At least not for this blog.
Somehow, I didn't forsee that using song lyrics as my post titles would bring more visitors looking for the songs. I certainly didn't think I would list first on Google for a certain Muse lyric ("No one's gonna take me alive" from "Knights of Cydonia") that brought 25 people here this week. I'm still up there for Kristin Stinar searches too, but, alas, I have no further information on her.
I need to clean up my act. Incidently, the title for this post is c Jim Gaffigan.
I'm moving to dog-watch Monday. I also only work 6 of the next 20 days. A trick of scheduling has left me with too much free time and 2 weekends off in a row. Life is good for now.
Until Congress comes for me.
Your Time Off leader.
