Be the Change You Want to See in the World

Yes, I realize I haven’t posted in a good long while.  Yes I regret it.  But please we are not gathered here today to berate me or to point out my shortcomings (of which there are MANY I assure you) today we gather on the eve of an auspicious time.  Our very beloved and free internet hangs by a thread, all could go to ruin.  Don’t let it happen.  We have the power and the chance to let our representatives know we do not support this, we do not want this, we will not stand for this.  SOPA and PIPA are terrible bits of legislation that must not make it into law.  Tell them to stop supporting their pocket books!  Need more info?  How about some links?

Be informed!  Let your state reps know how you feel!  I did.  Twice.

About Jeremiah Cochran

The last minute addition to the party that really brings it all together. Let's face it how else could you get past that Balrog without your Gandalf? (Yes I just compared myself to Gandalf, deal) A fan of comics, video games, sci-fi, fantasy, rolling dice, and tapping cards. Essentially he's the nerd renaissance man. Also he can cook. And do laundry (sort of).
