Congress, Drop the SOPA
Written by Bwog Staff
Hope you’re settling back into your overheated dorms and are enjoying the (finally) seasonally appropriate weather. Bwog is looking forward to starting up this new semester, but before we really get into the swing of things, we want to take a moment to talk about something super cereal.
Bwog usually doesn’t take upon itself the task of meddling in the affairs of the corporeal world. We will try to feed you, of course; report campus news, sure; showcase snow penises, always. However, there comes a time when an issue arises that needs to be confronted—something more important than opening remarks (remember to tip those) and stereotyping your peers. SOPA, and the accompanying Senate bill PIPA, pose a threat to the current state of the internet, an internet where rage comics roam free, and all movies/TV shows are ripe for the plundering. Bwog needn’t go into (or pretend to understand) the specific policy critiques, but suffice it to say, anything that is going to rob the Internet of Reddit or Wikipedia, be it only for a day, is something worth fighting against. To that end, Bwog will not exist tomorrow from 8 am til 8 pm.
