I will hoist multiple frosty adult beverages tonight in recognition of
those that fought the good fight!  The battle be won, but the war
rages on.

I say we try to get congress thrown out!  Er... wait, does saying that
get me a one way ticket to Gitmo?

All right then, beers at Gitmo!

Seriously though, thanks to you Wendy, and all those at the EFF and
all the other organisation/individuals that fought this for me, joe
blow consumer, that would not know where to start to fight this. 
Thank you, thank you, thank you.  You just made my Christmas card
