How time flies.

I'll be having a moment of silence in honor of the civil society and political freedoms that died on this day. In years to come, I'll tell my kids (or great-nieces and nephews), "Yeah, I remember the good old days, when you could check a book out from the library without worrying about its content, when you could engage in peaceful protests and not automatically get arrested, when people didn't really believe that only the guilty have something to hide, when you could say anything you wanted to in your blog and not worry about it."

The very fact I feal a frisson of fear at making this post public shows to me just how much we have lost.
