The House passed HR 513, the anti-free speech regulation of
so-called 527 groups yesterday. The Club For Growth is
all over the issue. My CongressCritter, Jeb Bradley, voted
for this. Right now, my feeling is that this is an unforgivable
after four years of failure... by the experiment of war, during which,
under the pretence of military necessity, or war power higher than the
Constitution, the Constitution itself has been disregarded in every
part, and public liberty and private right alike trodden down, and the

Prof Althouse has a response to an anti-blog article
by Matt Welch. As usual, she submits a well-expressed insight:
People blog for lots of different reasons, and blogging is still
burgeoning and developing. Don't cave into nostalgia for a Golden Age,
especially one that got its golden glow from the horror that was 9/11.
Things were bound to change and shake around, and some bloggers that you
liked then may put you off now. But there are always a million new
bloggers, and blogging is a beautifully fruitful format. The great power
of blogging is the way it releases the creativity of the individual
mind. That sense of not being able to predict your own opinions and
observations -- that feeling of writing to discover your own ideas and
interests -- is the great intrinsic value of blogging. There will always
be millions of individuals blogging for the sheer joy of
self-expression. Find them.
