JohnnyGTO writes "Nice to see some people understand that freedom of speech means both sides of an opinion!

British Lord Stings Senators Rockefeller and Snowe: Uphold Free Speech or Resign Lord Monckton, Viscount of Brenchley, has sent an open letter to Senators Rockefeller (D-WV) and Snowe (R-Maine) in response to their recent open letter telling the CEO of ExxonMobil to cease funding climate-skeptic scientists.

Lord Monckton, former policy adviser to Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, writes: "You defy every tenet of democracy when you invite ExxonMobil to deny itself the right to provide information to senior elected and appointed government officials who disagree with your opinion.""

See why it remains the most broadly available scripting language for Web development and a better choice for developing modern applications."
