A Word On Net Neutrality

If it weren’t for the Internet, I wouldn’t have a lot of things: A tribe of people who really get me, friends that I will have for the rest of my life, and my book.

But the Internet we all know and love is in danger. The new head of the FCC is working to dismantle net neutrality. Net neutrality is the basic principle that protects our free speech on the Internet. “Title II” of the Communications Act is what provides the legal foundation for net neutrality and prevents Internet Service Providers like Comcast, Verizon, and AT&T from slowing down and blocking websites, or charging apps and sites extra fees to reach an audience (which they then pass along to consumers.)

We cannot allow this to happen or it will destroy the Internet that we know and love (and love hate). Title II helps the web foster creativity and innovation, to keep doing what has been doing since it’s inception. Let’s not let big corporations take over. Please send a letter to Congress and the FCC by going here: Battle for the Net .

Is this the Megan who once lived across the street from Susie who lived next door to the infamous John(Irving)Singer who may or may not have been, or might or might not have been (whichever is grammatically correct) a bad actor (murderer)?

Second thought as to the internet now?

Yes, but save that one for possible reply to my review of Month of Sundays.

If you also take in short stories, you might find The Book of Other People interesting.
Basically an exercise in writing. Some good and some not so much.

A Month of Sundays is in route to me. So figure on a few weeks as need to button up before winter and then settle in. Since I’m going to read a woman, I’m going to get on a roll. This woman isn’t familiar in appearance, but I’ve done my… Read more »

Culture, like Botox, really gets around. Cities that don’t have it import it so to attract desirable residents, those with disposable income and the like. North Dakota has culture on order. Did you know that Botox was never even patent protected, but the name that is so ingrained in that… Read more »

I’m more familiar with actions and equal and opposite reactions. Me- Are you Megan from Boca? You- Bugger off! Inaction is fairly safe and just leaves one wondering. My Miriam Toews novel has been delayed. So it will be all you unless Barnes and Noble also ships from Florida “Dear… Read more »

So I read and enjoyed. Did a little reflecting along the way. Wondered why you give men lesser longevity……….they drop like flies or change gender. Have it down as to Mitch=husband, Mister=cat. I will be more specific as to favorite stories, lines, etc. but have to gather thoughts so as… Read more »
