Michael Powell Mentions Bloggers In His Announcement Stating He's Stepping Down As Head Of The FCC....."If you look at the Internet and the role that it played in the election and the political campaign, if you look at the fact that an Internet blogger can bring challenge to a network as formidable as CBS, you realize that more and more democratization of technology is leading to strong consumer value and that's what we're most proud of. And that's what we really wanted to focus our agenda on."

Having looked a little deeper into Maricopa County Arizona(Pink cuffs etc) I noticed... Their SWAT Team was recently Disbanded .
More information on how 2 of their SWAT Officers were shot while serving a search warrant has Emerged .

A shakeup in the Maricopa County Attorneys Office leaves the longtime chief prosecutor of sex crimes working in the juvenile division .Cindi Nannetti recently received the Arizona Felony Prosecutor of The Year Award.

I am not certain what bothers me more about this story.Whether it is the fact that if she is half as good as they say she is why not promote her or leave her in the sex crimes division.Or, if what bothers me most about this story stems from the fact that maybe if her new boss was a woman she would possibly be getting a promotion but definitely not a demotion.
