Save the Internet!

I am not sure if any of you have been following the issue of net neutrality, but I wanted to share a website with all of you. This website is affiliated with freepress.org and  has been following congress and the FCC on this important issue that will effect all of us. For those of you who are American citizens, you can use this site to write to your state Representative in congress, as well as directly to the head of the FCC. It is really easy, and will just take two seconds of your time. So check out this website, and if you agree with being able to use the internet freely, please tell the FCC so.
