>I propose this petition, called the True Change Petition (please think of a cooler name as well as your normal comments)
If the FISA bill with retroactive immunity for telecoms passes into Law I hereby agree that all those who voted for it will not get my vote in the 2008 November election for House or Senate.
This specifically includes those running for the office of President. Furthermore as Presidential nominee is a leadership position, if it passes even if the presidential candidate votes against it, I will not vote for them in the Presidential 2008 November election.
I agree to do this if this petition collects 10 Million signatures. This way if we all must vote for a third party candidate because of the above oath we are acting with enough votes to matter.
(Please make suggestions for modifications as well as a good real site to put this on)

So I took our HDTV on cable and hooked it up to some bunny ears. A few settings changed and a scan later and it was working.
I compiled a list of available channels and put them in a spreadsheet:
Or Download ODS
I plan to try to do another scan every month or so, and update the spreadsheet (which you can subscribe to if you really want).
Note: Those that were “flaky” most likely due to my bad hook up job. On analog all stations were quite fuzzy.
>How the Free versus Proprietary Software conflict frames our culture and ultimately government.
This is the first large political science paper I’ve written (20 Pages). I do plan on releasing the final copy under CC licensing, or maybe make it a wiki page.
It is currently available as HTML, PDF, and ODT if you would like to try to read it.
Please criticize, suggest, comment, etc. I am looking for feedback. Thanks.
