  •  Tom Keeps Outdoing Himself (3+ / 0-)

    Tom Tomorrow's cartoons are definitely worth getting out of bed to see.  I don't know how he does it, but he keeps outdoing himself.  This cartoon is --  or will be -- a classic.

    Tom's cartoon brought back to my mind something that actually happened 10-15 years ago, back when people could download music for free.  Someone downloaded a lot of music and the RIAA police went after them.  Somehow, they determined that a little old grandma in her 80s downloaded all of that heavy metal music.  So the RIAA went after her, tooth and nail.  Luckily, the news media found out about it, and they had a field day with it.  As I recall, they even had the little old lady on their news reports, and she had NO idea of what they were talking about.  The news media shot down the RIAA, and that outfit pretty much crawled back into the woodwork.

    This computer and "legitimacy" nonsense as perpetrated by the RIAA and Microsoft is really ignorant.  Thank you, Tom Tomorrow, for telling it like it is and giving us a good laugh as well.
