That was weird

I got a phone message asking if I was “Paul Tomblin, the Rochester blogger”, and if so, could I please call WHAM News. I phoned the number back, and it was somebody doing a story about a new law in New York that requires library and other public internet access sites to block access to MySpace and Facebook and other “social networking sites”, and they wanted a blogger to talk about whether private blog sites also would be affected by this law.

I know bugger all about this law, and while I’m usually willing to spout off about any subject any time, I didn’t really think I should be the one they talk to. Maybe if I didn’t think the story would interfere with tomorrow’s Pilots Picnic, I would have volunteered.
