We have to at least try something, Obama doesn't necessarily have to do it anyway. But even promoting net neutrality is a start

I think that if Obama can enforce some sort of net neutrality, that it can turn out to become his lasting legacy. The internet and its open usage and freedom is only going to become more important. If we can now introduce some sort of legislation that favors the people instead of major conglomerate corporations, it will be beneficial for years to come. In the first part of the article it has quotes from leaders from Verizon, AT&T, and Comcast, and that just made me laugh. Those companies disgust me with their interests. If for a second you can tell me that Comcast is looking out for everyone in the long run, with a straight face, I would laugh at you.

I do, so that sounds cool to me

Oh cool a map would help out a lot, that's a good find. As a side note, The Stand is a fantastic book, good choice! At the moment I started the book and am almost finished with the second chapter (like 25-30 pages). I'll stop here and wait for everyone to get it and read up to the same point , but right now its great a really unique plot.

What came to mind when I read this is 19th century Russian literature. Authors like Dostoevsky and Tolstoy, to an extent, were very good at writing long dinner scenes and passages about peoples personal lives and how they acted without furthering the plot. I really enjoy those authors and their writing style, its interesting to have a glimpse on a different era.

A lot of kids in my town have been getting access to heroin now. I see plenty of death notices in the paper of kids I went to high school with. I personally didn't realize you could snort heroin, I thought it was only direct injection. A false perception I feel some kids have is that its better for you if you don't inject it, safer to snort. Very dumb, I hope the trend stops

Well that's very interesting, I wonder what connections if any this has with depression. To me it seems it would have a high correlation, which is unfortunate that a simple human trait so many people have can cause it.
