All Hail the Internet Czar

You just knew it was coming.

You just knew that some politician, somewhere, was working diligently to figure out a way to destroy the Internet because, face it, cyberspace offers way more freedom to common, ordinary, unimportant civilians than the government-hugging politicos can tolerate.

Turns out that West By God Virginia Democrat Senator Jay Rockefeller was that someone, having spent months secretly drafting a bill that would "permit the president to seize temporary control of private-sector networks during a so-called cybersecurity emergency." (CNET News).
