Liberty on the Brain

Bush Says Cooperation Thwarted 2002 Attack – Yahoo! News: “Under the plot, the hijackers were to use shoe bombs to blow open the cockpit door of a commercial jetliner, take control of the plane and crash it into the Library Tower in Los Angeles, since renamed the US Bank Tower, Bush said. In his remarks, Bush inadvertantly referred to the site as ‘Liberty Tower,’ and immediately afterward, the White House corrected him.”


But here’s something kinda smart from a Republican: “I presume that if they did not want people to edit, they wouldn’t allow you to edit.”–said by Norm Coleman’s chief of staff, Erich Mische regarding the Wikipedia scandal. He’s right–why are all the lefties upset about this when editing is the whole point behind wikis. It’s biased to say that the government can’t edit posts about them.

I’ve used wikipedia to my advantage similarly. On the Stacia page, I added al ink to my blog. Sadly, someone else deleted it. But I was getting tons of hits from it, almost daily. Then I added something like, “Hey staffers: Stop trying to re-write history.” on Coleman’s page, which has also been deleted. This could be a hobby–adding little bits on random wikipedia pages.

Ok, back to work.
