This morning Don Wood sent a message to Publib saying that DOPA has been reintroduced in the House by Mark Kirk of Illinois. As you’ve probably read Ted “the internet is a series of tubes” Stevens has also introduced a bill called the “Protecting Children in the 21st Century Act,” which is a sort of son of DOPA.
Anyway, being the good citizen that I am, I decided to go see what the ALA website had on the subject. Answer: not much. Or, more accurately, not much that’s easy to find. Of course, not being able to find something on the ALA website hardly qualifies as news. Next I decided to try the Legislative Action Center, which I wrote about back in May, but lo–it has disappeared! I think that it has been replaced by this site, which seems to do most of the same stuff–but again, I’m not sure.
To be fair, I don’t think ALA is actually deleting online information–but (and again, this is hardly news) it does seem to be making it difficult to find.
