One of my personal kinks is the belief in freedom tempered with responsibility. The last few opinions have dealt with the blueovalnews.com affair.

While we are waiting for the next Mozilla build, and Redmond to build a standards compliant browser, here in the U.S, Section 508 is ticking...............WORKFORCE INVESTMENT ACT OF 1998, Section 508
Its not just a good idea, it's the Law!
United States Government websites, will have to comply with the provisions of this section, in regards to alternative display options for Individuals with Disabilities.
The pumpkin date for Government Websites, 18 months to the day that the legislation was enacted, is Feb. 7, 2000.

Yep! It's Gonna be your day in the Barrel.
