As a general rule, I don't post site news on weekends or holidays, but I'm making an exception due to the unique circumstances. I'm pleased to announce that as of today, our articles of incorporation have been accepted and signed off by the State of Delaware, and "SoylentNews PBC" is a licensed public benefit corporation, ready to accept business, effective today.

I feel that its fitting to post this today on July 4th, Independence Day, given the mission and unique history of SN. I'm going to do a follow-up post on Monday with more information on where we go now. Until then, have an awesome Independence Day, and a great weekend :-)

    Funny you mentioned that. I was incarcerated once and they asked my religion (seriously) and I told the guard "Put down Jedi or Jedi Knight". He laughed and said "I'll put down Jedi Knight.". Then I got locked in a solitary confinement room because they said I was suicidal. True story. Watch out what you say... and I live in the USA.

    I think I would prefer solitary to one of those community cells filled with rapists, druggies and vomiting drunks. I've heard stories.

    The terrorists have won, game, set, match. They've scared the people into electing authoritarian regimes.

      That's what the psychologist said when she was interviewing me to see if I could be released. I'd rather be with the devil than locked alone in that room for four days. Laughs and call me a joke, but after the third day you start losing it. I would like to thank them for rehabilitating me.
