Here are some of the more interesting comments that pepper the article:
It's almost as though I'm reading my local paper, The Columbus Dispatch. This article appears today listed on arstechnica's front page under the column "From the News Desk". Despite being declared news, most of the aritcle is either opinion or factual declarations without sources being cited (e.g., "the communist regime has committed its resources to crushing web sites that challenge government authority").
So my question is, did Mr. Paul get paid for this? If so, where can I submit my stream of thought opinions for some extra cash?
