The U.S. Federal Communications Commission has received a record 3 million comments from consumers, advocates, companies and lawmakers on proposed new Internet traffic, or "net neutrality," rules as the deadline to formally weigh in approached on Monday.

The Nation Janet Jackson Built

I realize that's a big claim for a decade that included such talents as Whitney Houston, Tina Turner, Annie Lennox, Cyndi Lauper, and Madonna. It may seem even more dubious given the fact that Janet really only emerged as a major figure in 1986 with the release of Control -and only released two substantial albums over the course of the decade.

'Fast lanes' backlash sets FCC record

The Federal Communications Commission has received 1.47 million comments on its controversial plan for new net neutrality rules, breaking the record set by Janet Jackson's infamous "wardrobe malfunction" at the 2004 Super Bowl. The old record of 1.4 million comments was broken Wednesday amid an Internet-wide protest of the FCC's regulatory plan, which critics warn could lead to a tiered system of "fast lanes" and "slow lanes" on the Internet.

Lunchtime Poll: Would You Buy Miley's Art?

In last week's sadder-than-sad Lunchtime Poll I asked you which song about cats was the best song about cats, and I must apologize - while the question was valid, my brain was too fogged by mourning the loss of the best kitty monster in the world to consider that there are SO MANY great songs about felines. There's no way I could fit all the options into one poll.
