This blog has been censored

As of today, I am unable to see my own blog, which seems to be because my government has decided to goahead and block all Blogger (and maybe Typepad) blogs in India. No reason has been given for this move, and this has happened suddenly, without warning or any announcement.

ThisWiki is a good place to start if you want to read about, or join in the protest against this odious censorship.

Update (20/7/2006): The block has been lifted. Blogger blogs are accessible in India once more.

Update (20/7/2006): Fireworks still banned in the USA.

Don't hit people, and don't take their stuff. The government's only legitimate function is to deal with those who do either.

Fourth of July Bloody Mindedness

Every time I think that the US is so much better a country than mine, it has much better roads, much politer people, the trains run on time, I think hey, maybe my country is poor, socialist and generally f***ed up, but at least I can light fireworks any day of the year.

India, fuck yeah!
