Senator Wicker Introduces Bill To Guarantee The Internet Sucks (techdirt)

Why does Senator Roger Wicker from Mississippi hate the internet? Wicker, who has a close relationship with big telcos, who have long made it their mission to destroy the open internet, was already a co-sponsor of an awful "Section 230 reform" bill last session, and is back now with what he's ridiculously calling the "PRO-SPEECH" Act.

Vaccine supply grows by the day as expiration dates loom

A day given to fathers, somewhat begrudgingly, when they’re given the honor of standing over the Weber burning steaks, chicken and fish, until they’re finally released from toil, and allowed to collapse on the couch and watch a Dodgers game in peace, with a cold one in hand. And boy, was ...
