The real Digital Divide
A letter to the editor of the Reminder Community News in East Hartford, Connecticut they get no link because their site is insufferable as transcribed by Jennifer:
It’s in the news. President Bush has signed “Indecency Legislation” into law, making it possible for TV and radio broadcasters to be fined up to $325,000 per incident of showing indecent nudity or broadcasting raunchy language. However, cable and satellite companies are exempt! This is discrmination against poor people. This is just absolutely unfair! Why should those who can afford cable or satellite be able to watch nudity and we poor people cannot? The Supreme Court ought to shoot this one down right now. I cannot believe this is happening in this land of the free! Only if you got the big bucks is it free!
Expect a measure to change "Land of the Free" to "Land of the Reasonably-Priced."
