Don't Forget To Wear Your Seatbelt
Courtesy of the Augusta Free Press, Congressman Bob Goodlatte informs us that June is National Internet Safety Month. Like fire, the Internet can be used for good or for ill. So remember, when using the Internet, please keep your arms and legs inside the ride at all times and observe the Captain's instructions.
In all seriousness, Congressman Goodlatte has become a leader in promoting the benefits of Internet technology while protecting citizens from those who would seek to misuse the medium. He has some good things to say about spam, spyware, and P2P. Most importantly, he supports limiting taxes on e-commerce to encourage growth and development.
As an aside, while most people are talking about '08 in terms of the Presidential race, Virginia will also have a Senate race that year. Should John Warner choose to retire, I hope the Virginia GOP will give Bob Goodlatte a good look. I feel he has the leadership, intelligence and experience to make a great Senator and I hopes he gets the chance.
