Dialogue Record Entry #7

My frequent readers will be able to recall an incident that took place just a few short weeks ago when my blog was lifted from the virtual world and used, without my knowledge or consent, as incriminating evidence against a friend of mine. My response was not a pleasant one.

You may have also noticed that my blog has been recently sporting a blue ribbon at the bottom of the page along with the quote, "To hear one voice clearly, we must have freedom to hear them all." This is a quote that I believe to be very true and essential to our democracy. The blue ribbon is to identify my site as a supporter of the "Free Speech Online" campaign.

Today I am also officially endorsing the Electronic Frontier Foundation and their fight to ensure bloggers' rights. Rights that guarantee bloggers are entitled to free speech, the right to have political speech, to stay anonymous, the freedom from liability, and the freedom to maintain an open forum without fear of government intervention. Many of these rights have been challenged and called into question in recent legislation.

In that light, I provide the following...

The Dialogue is an official member of the
Electronic Frontier Foundation
and a supporter in the fight for
Free Speech Online.

Looks like the beginning of a campaign! I support this cause and, most likely, this candidate.
