Finally a fix for the "digital divide"

Well, our people in Washington are up to it again. This time a plan for "free" broadband for Americans finally bridge the so-called gap between the Internet haves and have-nots. I thought we already had free Internet access in our local libraries but I guess that's not enough in our couch potato society. Oh, and censorship is already built into the plan - I can't fathom where it'll only go from there with the Feds in control.

Imagine each and every Joe/Josephine American with access to the Internet...Good for telecommuters. Good for hackers. Likely more job security for all of us in the information security field. I'm sure the malware vendors will be thrilled. The big ISPs...not so much.

    Hey John Muleta - founder and chief executive of M2Z (the vendor who stands to get the most out of this) - don't use the government as an instrument of plunder!
