One more reason, dear Attytood commenter, to be glad you don't live in New York

One more reason, dear Attytood commenter, to be glad you don't live in New York

Actually, I wasn't referring to baseball, but to this:

Did you hear the one about the New York state lawmakers who forgot about the First Amendment in the name of combating cyberbullying and “baseless political attacks”? Proposed legislation in both chambers would require New York-based websites, such as blogs and newspapers, to “remove any comments posted on his or her website by an anonymous poster unless such anonymous poster agrees to attach his or her name to the post.”

Of couirse, the idea is totally unconstitutional and what not, but some days it's nice to dream.

By the way, I think the legislation does ban Mr. Met, since he's anonymous.
