Internet companies and civil liberties groups were alarmed this spring when a U.S. Senate bill proposed handing the White House the power to disconnect private-sector computers from the Internet.

They're not much happier about a revised version that aides to Sen. Jay Rockefeller, a West Virginia Democrat, have spent months drafting behind closed doors... [Front page...]

Sometimes I wonder if things would have been better without all this need for "change"

The bad part is, the people that would actually try a cyber attack of the suspected nature are surely going to be quite a bit better than anyone the government will put in place to prevent it.

Hmm, how about "Bill would give president emergency control of US bit of the Internet"? It doesn't really affect anyone outside the US.

I dare to offer this alternative....

"Bill would give Internet emergency control of president "

How could this be worse than what we have now?
