thank you internet for the script


Today at noon, Congress is expected to vote on whether to gut the FCC’s broadband privacy rules that prevent Internet Service Providers like Comcast and Verizon from collecting and selling your personal data without your permission.

Call Congress right now.

Sen. Lisa Murkowski   (202) 224-6665
Sen. Susan Collins      (202) 224-2523
Sen. Jerry Moran        (202) 224-6521

Here’s a sample script you can use:

“Hi, my name is ______, I’m calling to ask Senator _____ to vote against the CRA proposal to roll back the FCC’s broadband privacy rules. This would let Internet Service Providers sell my personal information without my permission This is an issue I’m incredibly concerned about, and I hope you’ll take my thoughts into consideration. Thank you for your time.”

I just want to say

How thankful I am for this blog. When I started this blog, back in the summer of 2013, the Shakespeare tag was misquoted we heart it posts and shakespeare hate, 90% “When I saw you I fell in love and you smiled because you knew” and 10% I hate my Shakespeare homework posts. 

This blog brought Shakespeare back into the lives of young people. Its a resource, a way to connect. Since the founding of this blog so many other great blogs have been created to further connect the Shakespeare community. People are drawing art, finding ways to make Shakespeare relatable, connecting through script via video and audio feeds, and writing fanfiction. 

THIS is exactly what I envisioned when I first set out to make this blog. I said to myself-I just want to make Shakespeare accessible. I thank all of you guys who further extend this goal into different facets of the internet community for making this happen. 

The blog is at over 8,500 followers and its because people are interested in what Shakespeare has to say. They might not have heard his voice if were not for this blog and all of the rest of you out there who give people access to his ideas every day.
