Uncensored legitimacy! January 19, 2012 Posted by Mookie
And we're back! For those of you who may be confused by today's comic, you can now view yesterday's "censored" comic normally.

Thank you for standing with me and the thousands of other sites on the internet during yesterday's SOPA/PIPA BLACKOUT. It was a memorable day across the internet, and amidst the protests eight lawmakers in the House of Representatives and the Senate withdrew their previous support for SOPA & PIPA. It's not the end of this fight yet, but it's certainly a step in the right direction and it made some people think twice about these dangerous bills.

As of this writing, PIPA (Protect IP) is still scheduled to go to the floor of the Senate for a vote on January 24. If you haven't already, contact your senators and encourage them to oppose this bill. Emails are good, but phone calls are the best. I called John Kerry's office. The staffer there was very polite.

Okay. That's enough politics from me for now. Barring any further developments, I'll probably talk about comic books tomorrow.
Rock on and Get Your Censor On.
