My co-worker and I were just talking about this. We both agreed that the kind of shock and loss we feel today is akin to having lost someone close to us, even though we'd never met the man. One of the things we enjoyed doing during our lunch breaks would be to watch videos of AB confronting those who hated him the most and cheer him on while marveling at his fearlessness. The man had stones, and his wit and his sheer audacity will be missed.

"It is our hope that the White House and the Congress will call on those who intend to stage this “blackout” to stop the hyperbole and PR stunts and engage in meaningful efforts to combat piracy."
Dodd's accusing others of hyperbole is rich, considering he wrote following in his letter:
"... technology business interests are resorting to stunts that punish their users or turn them into their corporate pawns."
" It is...an abuse of power..."
" It’s a dangerous and troubling development when the platforms that serve as gateways to information intentionally skew the facts to incite their users in order to further their corporate interests."
"A so-called “blackout” is yet another gimmick, albeit a dangerous one, designed to punish elected and administration officials..."
Chris Dodd is nothing more than a power-hungry, corrupt elitist. Reading his letter, one can almost hear him screaming, "My intentions are good and besides, I know best!" His letter would be laughable if it weren't so obvious that he believes every single word it says. He actually accuses others of "an abuse of power" because they're using their God-given right to free speech and standing up to prevent a bad law from being passed. What an a$$h0le.
It was founded by Bill Whittle, one of my favorite conservative bloggers/commentators. They have two films in the pipeline now, and they're funding comes totally from "citizen producers" who are tired of the same old same old coming out of Hollywood. I highly recommend you check out the site.
