It’s a 2-fer!
- Craig Ferguson. The host of The Late Late Show won’t mock Britney Spears — at least for now — maintaining that comics should attack the powerful, not the vulnerable. That was also the attitude of the late (and much missed) Molly Ivins, and of all decent satirists throughout history. Why not send a note of appreciation to CBS or one of the show’s sponsors?
- The Electronic Frontier Foundation. This organization is to cyberspace what the ACLU is to meatspace. They’ve scored some legal victories lately, helping bloggers and webmasters maintain their free speech rights against the likes of Eli Lilly, Discovery Communications and a certain purple dinosaur. Whether you know it or not, they’re fighting for you.
