Interesting to see that someone utilizing Christianity as their reasoning for their vote would vote for someone that blatantly lied to the world about the roots of his Christianity.

If your religion was that important to you, surely you wouldn't cast your lot with someone that disrespects it so.

Japanese Government to Regulate Online Communication 143

from the best-of-luck-with-that dept.
Chris Salzberg writes "The Japanese government made major moves this month toward legislating extensive regulation over online communication. In a series of little-publicized meetings, two distinct government ministries pushed ahead with regulation in three major areas of online communication: web content, mobile phone access, and file sharing. Content regulation will cover anything on the web, including personal blogs and web pages. Upcoming mandatory filtering of mobile phone access is targeted at users under age 18, and will cover chat rooms, forums, bulletin boards and social networking services. File sharing legislation will initially target illegal downloads, but, according to critics, may ultimately broaden to include streaming media from sites such as YouTube."

It's hard to think of you as the end result of millions of years of evolution.
