Incredible work, everyone. These numbers are huge.

How huge? With 10,000 sites participating in yesterday’s net neutrality effort, a total of 304,993 calls got made. You made nearly half of them. Bravo. 

Also…which one of you made that 61 minute call? What’d you guys talk about? 

The fight isn’t over, by the way. You can follow themediafix and demand-progress to keep up with everything that happens from now until the FCC votes.

Never such innocence again. But we still make the same mistakes, because we still understand war through analogy and our analogies still fail. Now we see it as a video game, or we see it as a component of the NFL’s set of minor paraphernalia, jet flyovers part of the same combo pack that includes beer commercials and classic-rock riffs. We’re still trying to make the metaphor work, only now we’re doing it in reverse, endlessly describing games in terms of who conquered/eviscerated/bombed/slaughtered whom. It’s the same old trick, though. It’s a way to hide the horror under one layer of spectacle and another layer of moral virtue — a way to pretend that war is like a game, that there are rules, that there is safety. A way not to look into oblivion. We missed the cruel irony in all those soccer balls that show up in World War I photos. Nothing is a metaphor for war. War is a metaphor for nothing.

Here We Go Magic - A Different Ship

She’s on another ship for heaven
Got her ticket there from Lucifer himself
Second engine failing
No one can rescued
Vacuum God

She’s on another trip that’s pregnant with disaster
Anything worth drinking up there on the shelf
Falling then forever
A planet with no surface
Anything still solid til the molten core?

Up against terrible odds
Up against terrible odds

She’s on another trip for heaven
Got her ticket there from Lucifer himself
Falling now forever
One planet with no surface
Anything still solid til the molten core?

Vacuum God…
