Now, this is just me, mind you, but I really don't think that mail-bombing,
or other similar acts of aggression are the most politically slick way to
express your displeasure at the decision. Machiavelli would NOT approve.
On the other hand, since the people who were asking for support against
this legislative ledger-demesne (or is that just book-keeping?) obviously
didn't receive enough help to convince our representatives, I think that
darkening home pages where possible is easy enough (ok, it's not for me, but
I neither maintain my own home page, nor am I allowed to express political
opinions on it). Beyond that, all we can do is support the ACLU and try to
convince the Supreme Court that this close-room residue is an abridgement of
our rights to free speech and potentially a free press.
