Follow-up to subjection of Internet to world control

Iran is one of the countries wanting the U.S. to relinquish control of the Internet. If anything, the U.S. simply led to the development and implementation of the Internet.

On October 28, 2005, I wrote:
Affairs of a Sordid World: Right about now I'm glad I don't live in Iran ...: "Your life could be worse. You could be Omid Sheikhan, an Iranian blogger sentenced to a year in prison and 124 lashes for satirizing his country's political leaders. Oh, and for having a birthday party."
Are you willing to spend time in prison and get whipped 124 times just so you can bask in the light of Cindy Sheehan while dousing Pres. Bush with sloven jeers?

I don't think so.

Sign the petition to keep Iranian blogger Omid Sheikhan out of prison
