Open letter to Customer Service:
December 2, 2010

I’m disgusted by Amazon’s cowardice and servility in abruptly terminating today its hosting of the Wikileaks website, in the face of threats from Senator Joe Lieberman and other Congressional right-wingers. I want no further association with any company that encourages legislative and executive officials to aspire to China’s control of information and deterrence of whistle-blowing.

Even promise of new vows in the form of a "new strategic concept" and the offer of missile defenses - cannot rekindle the flame.
