Just when I was hoping for a break from the non-stop Britney Spears coverage, I got it! But now, I have non-stop O.J. Simpson coverage. Another angle involving Simpson is the release of his book, "I Did It," as released by the Goldman family, who now own the rights to the book. The book has gone staight to the top of the Amazon book sales charts.

My question to you, the blogging public is this: what will it take for us to be satisfied and be done with O.J.? If O.J. ends up going to jail for the charges he currently faces, will you feel some sort of satisfaction because he didn't get convicted of the double-murder back in 1995?

Internet. Good or bad?

Do you think the creation of internet many, many years ago has benefitted our society overall? Or has it been a huge negative?

The FCC does not regulate the internet. Should it? If so, how do you propose the FCC regulate the world wide web?

Personally, how has the internet made an impact on your life? Please explain how it has been a positive and a negative force, if applicable.

Labor Day Weekend News Item

As a news junkie, I am always amazed at the "seasonal" stories that make the headlines each year at certain times. As is the case with Labor Day weekend, the AAA always makes the news with a story about the number of people travelling and whether that number is up or down from the previous year and the gas price for the weekend.

I have the following question...how much does the average person care? If you are likely to travel by car somewhere, will you be thinking about the amount of cars on the road nationwide? Either way, you will travel. Oh, and by the way, how does the AAA arive at their traffic estimates?

Also, whether or not gas costs more or less, people will still drive.

Get ready to dust off this story come Thanksgiving time, except it will include air travel.
