Names Have Been Changed To Protect Wittier Stuff

A lot of attention has been drawn to SOPA and PIPA by the recent 2-hour blackout of many much-frequented web pages in protest.

Among all the information about the bills, a wonderful nugget has been largely buried. PIPA ia also known as the Protect IP Act. But it has now been renamed the Enforcing and Protecting American Rights Against Sites Intent on Theft and Exploitation Act. Why the name change? Well, American lawmakers can no more resist a good acrostic than could Lewis Carroll: it spells out EPARASITES.
