A few comments….

Monday, 3rd of May, was the 30th ‘Freedom of the Press Day:’  with the release of the 2009 ‘freedom of the press’ ratings by FreedomHouse.  Reporters Without Borders has a slightly different – though no less grim – set of results.  And ‘they’ ask why people are going to the blogosphere to get their news.

Still, it is, in my never-humble-opinion, difficult to measure just how ‘free’ the ‘press’ in the West really is… Some shackles are self-imposed, and cannot be reflected by a measurement on ‘external’ limitation!

The ‘xkcd blag’ has an absolutely awesome post on the colourful things Aspies do for fun!

Talking about colour:  ‘Passion for Freedom’ 2010 art competition, by OneLawForAll, has opened.  It will run in September 2010 and the focus is to expose the discriminatory nature of Sharia – submissions are now being accepted.

OneLawForAll also announced a rally on June 20th 2010 in Trafalgar Square (that would make it London, England – methinks).  This will commemorate the brutal murder of Neda Agha-Soltan during Iran’ ‘women’s revolution’.

Sorry to post a list of interesting ‘stuff’ without that much commentary.  And, I still have a lot of unfinished (though most are close) posts on the Free Dominion appeal hearing – both background and my take.  It is taking me longer than I thought to understand some of the legal precedents….so, my time is spent reading.

I promise I’ll be back to ‘normal’ soon – well, whatever it is that passes for ‘normal’ with me!

    People are going to the blogosphere these days maybe because it is where they can find open-minded and truthful discussions and where they can express their thoughts and ideas. It’s disappointing that credible editors are not open to what could lead them to the truth.
