Action alert: 'Brokeback' banned; China bans Wikipedia
It doesn't surprise me that this is happening in highly-conservative Utah, but nonetheless, it's important to make a stink about it: via Ironweed Films, I learned that the Megaplex theatre in Sandy, Utah -- owned Larry Miller, who also owns the NBA's Utah Jazz -- has pulled the Brokeback Mountain from their screens. Ironweed has a petition going; you can sign it here, and send it to your friends here.
In other banning news, this one via Slashdot, China has banned access to the Wikipedia for the third time in two years. It's evidently been happening for ten weeks now, which no indication whether it's temporary or permanent. Luckily for its PR, Microsoft wasn't involved in this round of censorship.
