Balls Update

Hey folks, I'll stop talking about Balls to Congress soon. But it means a lot to me, as you can tell.

It turns out that we were misreading; the site was not started by Ed Schultz himself, but rather by a gentleman who comments on Schultz's message boards. We contacted the gentleman on Wednesday, and he's yet to write back. Since he started his site barely two weeks ago, and was inspired by a caller to the Ed Schultz Show, we can only assume that said caller had read about us on the Daily Kos and not quite made the connection, and that the founder of the new site didn't do very careful research, so excited was he by the idea. Certainly, I can understand being excited by the idea, and I hope that we'll be able to create a partnership. But we at Balls do want acknowledgment of first use. Hopefully we'll be able to get it. We are documented back to November, both on the interweb and in written documents, and we're getting a trademark as we speak.

(We were also on the radio. Neat, huh?)

That is all. In the meantime, you should really send some balls to Congress yourself! Seriously, what with the expansion of wiretapping rights expansion and the ridiculous behavior surrounding Gonzales, I'd say this is a good time.
