I was watching Moyers on America, here's the link: Moyers on America - Net Neutrality, recently and the topic was keeping the intenet safe. About the idea of the fast lane (for people willing to pay more money) and the slow lane (for almost everybody else) being proposed by the big business. There's also a very important concept/law, Net Neutrality, that big business keeps trying to stomp out. Basically, Net Neutrality, is the principle that the people are in control of the content they view on the internet, how they view the internet, and what they say on the internet. To find out more, and why the issue is important, here's two more links: Google Guide to Net Neutrality and SaveTheInternet.
A random aside, which was originally before the Net Neutrality paragraph, and this stream of thought led to that one, but anyways: I'm happy to see that the "Winter Mix" San Antonio was expecting (at least as of today) looks like it'll "just" be very cold and wet, but not freezing. San Antonians drive best in hot, dry weather. Anything else and forget it. There's like some 200+ accidents when it rains. "People" tell me it's because the rain brings up the oil on the streets that "we don't normally notice when it's hot"; and maybe there's some truth to that. But, I think it has more to do with the driving style of San Antonians. Yellow means go faster, a Yellow just turned Red means, if you're stopped at the Red light - count to three then go, because usually someone races threw a just turned Red (cause they sped threw the Yellow). Trucks think they always have the right to "push you" out of their way. Yield - what's that - beeeeeppppp - why aren't you speeding into the oncoming traffic. San Antonio has SUPER SHORT highway entrance ramps, and nobody likes to let you in - I wonder sometimes about SA's civil engineers. However, SA has wonderful "turn arounds" - if you miss your exit just get off at the next one and you can easily turn around and get back on going in the correct direction. I think of myself as a very safe driver which means I annoy a whole lot of other drivers, but I'd rather get somewhere intact then 5 minutes early [which I do anyways since I give myself plenty of time to get where I'm going :-)]
One last thing about driving - the last time I was up in Michigan I thought I was going to die because of how they drive. My friend got a little annoyed and asked me too relax, and reminded me that I used to drive just like them only I'd forgotten how. Michiganders drive very fast and very close to each other, and they really enjoy weaving in and out of lanes. I also, had to explain to my wife that (at least in "my" part of Michigan) what a "Michigan left" was.
