Net Neutrality update

the fight over net neutrality appears to be on the Senate back burner, at least for now, as Oregon Democrat Ron Wyden has written Frist about his intent to filibuster the current bill, which made it out of the commerce committee without the pro-NN amendment tacked on, which in the short term is definitely a setback for the pro-NN forces. So they'll tackle it later on after they come back from their break or put it off till just after the election, which wouldn't surprise me in the least. More here, and in the Houston Chronicle's blog(?), here.
