In other news, the SOPA protest is in full swing. It is definitely an interesting list of supporters, who won't be getting any of my money. Ironically, the right-wing "let freedom ring" people are in full support of this bill, since it purports to stop the Chinese from stealing our stuff. mmkay.
See the money trail
at OpenCongress.org (a prime target for a SOPA shutdown when this passes, for sure!).
Oh, wait, the bill says I can't. And I can't link there either.

About 21 MILLION dollars have been donated by supporters of the bill, notably to:
Rep. Eric Cantor [R, VA-7] $668,192
Rep. Howard Berman [D, CA-28] $590,398
Rep. Steny Hoyer [D, MD-5] $557,107
