# Claire Wolfe - Liberty Post deletes Loompanics - cowards. [claire]

WOW. LIBERTY POST HAS JUST BANNED ALL MENTION OF LOOMPANICS. Really. See for yourself. A poster on that site merely mentioned (and apparently linked to) Loompanics as a source of interesting books ... and LOP!

The reason? The owner of Liberty Post (whose name I don't know) claims that linking to that evil, bad, dangerous publisher could violate the Patriot Act and get her (?) and her webmaster pitched into prison. Removing not only the link but the very name "Loompanics," she (?) cited the case of Sherman Austin. Austin posted bomb-making info on his web pages, advocated violence, and went to prison for it. His case isn't even remotely analogous to this one.

# Kim du Toit - Near The Head Of The Line - Kim skewers Eliot Spitzer, New York's Attorney General. [kimdutoit]

Anyway, back to the issue at hand: that of Eliot Spitzer's hanging.

Just in case anyone should wonder why this loathsome turd is always in the news, here's the answer: he's going to run for governor of New York in 2006.

And if you think his ambition will end there, the Brooklyn Bridge Sales Co. would like you to give them a call.
