Yup, we lost the frontpage news again. Will the madness ever stop? Ross has been working on transfering the user sessions to track on our server, but the server has been choking on it. He is trying another method, so bear with us.
In the meantime... Uh.... So the Pope thinks the Internet "needs regulation to stop depravity flooding cyberspace". He also added, "For the church the new world of cyberspace is a summons to the great adventure of using its potential to proclaim the Gospel message."
Translation: "The Internet is another way for the church to get rich and keep fooling people!"
GREAT... Will this guy die or what?! Now that the Pope has recommended regulating the internet, who knows how many religious nuts and politicians will follow.
BTW - did you know people arrested for marijuana on average spend more time in jail than convicted rapists and murderers? There is a great article about it in the new Maxim. Here are some interested stats to chew on:
1) If we stopped the "war on drugs" we would save over $19 billion per year...
2) If we allowed the legal sale of marijuana it would generate close to $2 billion in sales tax based on the rate people are CURRENTLY buying it (illegally).
3) Our prisons would have MANY less inmates... Less people your tax dollars are going to feed.
What does everyone think?
