A rose by any other name

I've been following the Pirate Bay trial pretty closely, as I am of the opinion that it is important for the near future of the world. Long term there is no way to prevent it so laws will only be a temporary barrier to it happening anyhow, but I'd be much more content with the nature of the present world if the Pirate Bay won this round.

Anyhow, Roger Wallis was apparently berated on the stand (he was a witness for the defense) by the prosecution's attorneys, and there was even a recess for everyone to "calm down." After he was done, the judge asked him if there was anything he could do for him. "You could send some flowers to my wife" was the reply.

Now, I'm not the only person following this trial. Many around the world understand the importance, and are following even more intently than I am. Anyhow, here's a list of who has sent flowers so far.

Things like this make me smile. This lets me know that there is some good in the world.
