Has This Ever Happened Before?

Don Siegelman, former governor of Alabama, is in prison on trumped-up charges brought in an obvious political prosecution by Republicans- so obvious that CBS has reported the case nationally.

But not in Alabama, where the CBS broadcast stream was blacked out for the segment on Siegelman by the owner of the local affiliate- a Republican.

I thought I'd seen just about everything, but this is like watching a movie about a dictatorship- and realizing it's not a movie, it's not a dream, you can't wake up- because you're already awake.

Too bad the same can't be said for the people around you.
