The Grand Inquisitor

By Michael J. Smith on Monday September 11, 2006 07:45 PM

Somehow I had missed the fact that Dan Glickman, the head of the Motion Picture Association of American, and a leading crusader for the inquisitorial "Broadcast Flag," was Bill Clinton's Secretary of Agriculture, and before that an 18-year Democratic Congressman from Kansas, until he lost his seat in the biblical deluge of 1994. According to his Wikipedia entry, he distinguished himself while in Congress by writing "landmark legislation providing product liability protection for small airplane manufacturers."

Who knows, perhaps the next President Clinton will make him Secretary of Commerce. Or invent a new post for him -- Copyright Czar, maybe.

Note also that comments with three or more links may be held for "moderation" -- a strange term to apply to the ghost in this blog's machine. Seems to be a hard-coded limitation of the blog software, unfortunately.
