Guardrails My Ass

Joel Johnson rebuts Sony Pictures CEO Michael Lynton, who just doesn't get the Internet: "People create content, Mr. Lynton. And that content now lives on the internet. What's in danger isn't content, it's distribution businesses unwilling to work with consumers."

Kass invoked the "wisdom of repugnance" a few years before he joined an administration that treated the willingness to torture as a great moral virtue -- meanwhile coddling bigots for whom rage at gay marriage was an appropriate response to “the violation of things we hold rightfully dear.”
