    Confirmed: The RIAA Is Concentrated Evil

    In another sign that the present way that the government does business is literally for sale, Gizmodo has a story on a particularly odious bill addition.

    In a ridiculous display of just how much you can get done in government if you have enough money, a new bill on the House floor states that if colleges don't police their networks and do the RIAA and MPAAs bidding as well as buy into services such as Napster for their entire student body, they'll lose all their federal funding. Yep, that means if a college doesn't want to hand over names to the RIAA they'll lose things like their Pell grants, depriving thousands of low-income students from financial aid.

    Ah.  Greed.  There really isn't much more to say than that.
