Which brings us to today's banner headline from National Journal's (excellent) Tech Daily Dose:
Voinovich, IP Crusader, Confirms RetirementWhich was probably the first time the low-key Ohioan, a "plainspoken Midwesterner" has ever been called a "crusader," let alone an "IP" one. I have no reason to doubt National Journal's conclusion that Voinovich has been a " key Senate proponent for U.S. intellectual property protection." But somehow the mainstream papers that covered his retirement announcement failed to focus on his IP record. Instead, the Plain Dealer highlighted his plans to spend "more time [on] his avocation -- fishing for walleye, bass, yellow perch and steelhead trout in Lake Erie."
