Site exposing corruption shut down

"The landslide has started, it's too late for the pebbles to vote." -B5

It's happening, folks. Wikileaks.org, site dedicated to exposing corruption, has been shut down, by order of the Supreme Court. Seems that international banking didn't like what was being said about them.

[Addenda: it has been pointed out that this was a California District Court ruling, which makes it all the more troubling. When did California get authorization for essentially global censorship? BTW, a friend says that NPR reported it as a Supremes decision. Maybe because one thinks it has to be well up the food chain to behave with such authority. Apparently not.]
