Power of Blogs

August 25, 2006

blog coverIn July, I wrote about the power of blogs (Blog, Blog, Blog) and told of Kentucky Gov. Ernie Fletcher’s executive order prohibiting state employees from reading certain blogs – particularly BluegrassReport.org.

The owner of that blog, Mark Nickolas,sued (pdf) in July, claiming that the government censored Nickolas and other blogs because they were critical of Gov. Ernie Fletcher’s (R) administration.

We’re not sure if this blog is being blocked on Escambia County computers. We do know that Commissioner Mike Whitehead and Escambia Co. Planet George Touart have banned the Independent News from the old Escambia County courthouse.

If you believe the Independent News should be allowed back in the lobby of the old courthouse, email Commissioner Whitehead (district1@co.escambia.fl.us). I’m sure he’d love to hear from you.
