With Ace reporting that San Francisco is considering regulating bloggers and making them accountable to the city's Ethics Commission, I can only assume it's a matter of time before the People's Republic of Madison follows suit.
Madison's city government loves nothing more than adding stupid regulations and leveeing silly fees and taxes. Add in the fact that they can stick it to the more conservative blogosphere and it's a slam dunk.
If this comes to pass, I fear I will have to ask you, good readers, for help. With your kind contributions, I can purchase a laptop with wireless internet access and do my blogging from the safe haven of Lake Monona, just out of the reach of my greedy, free-speech-crushing local government.
I'd like to be the founder of a rebel organization called "Free Blogging Madison". But, I do need help coming up with some cool, establishment-busting slogans.

|I saw this too and wondered how soon before Madison's city council does the same thing.
Here's my personal favorite slogan: "Hey Mayor Dave, Ban This!"

I guess we have to go vote tomorrow and at least keep 'em honest.
Congratulations on your beautiful new daughter, by the way :-)

|You need something like "Blog free or die" or " You can take my blog when you pry it from my cold, dead server". |
