Bloggers Unite For Human Rights

I was reminded by DevTopics and Remote Access that today is “Bloggers Unite For Human Rights” day.  Since my site is relatively controversial, I probably cherish this right more than most. My ability to question the logic and policies of my nation and other nations is not globally accepted.
