“SILENCE OF SIX” REVEAL STILL NOT LOUD ENOUGH

Dramatis Personai has released their second video…and if the latest hacktivists on the scene left some unanswered questions the first time around, this time they’ve got me completely befuddled.

Is this supposed to mean something to me?…I’m a guy who pretty much lives his life with his ear to the ground, and the term “Silence of Six”—much less “Silence of Six murders”—is hitting me for the first time. That there have apparently been congressional hearings on this issue is more than a tad sobering. Kudos to DP for uncovering this footage and bringing it to our attention…now can they please tell us where they got it, and how? I’ve got that awful “government conspiracy to keep the public in the dark” feeling again…

LOUD FROM NEW YORK, IT’S DRAMATIS PERSONAI

FULL CORT UPDATE: GOLIATH GOES DOWN

I’m delighted to report that in Full Cort Press’ staring contest with Granville High, the good guys have triumphed. Granville blinked, Full Cort is reinstated, and her school-wide Digital Detox idea has even been greenlighted—it’s scheduled for Wednesday.

It’s a small victory on the scale of things; but it’s a reminder of a principle we need to reaffirm every now and then. That old paranoid refrain—“Who watches the watchmen?”—has an answer: we do. They may stalk us and harass us and intrude on our privacy, but we can face them down and hold them to account. We won’t always win…but we’ll never win if we don’t fight.

Let the battle continue.
