On the front page of the New York Times today, Pussy Riot has been sentenced to 2 years in jail.  We started a class talking about them so I thought I'd share this.

Censorship of Opinions

Boy talk about censorship, you know when you make a comment like I am doing now and then click on the button to submit that comment. Well the internet has gone the way of CSPAN who if they don't like what a person says they set thing with their phone system to drop the call and you are suddenly dropped out of the process of open debate. Anyway: I made a comment on a news story and this was the error message.

So what I wrote was not what the news censor wanted written. I hope they figure out that there are other opinions than theirs and that is why they are called opinions.
