Also in the news: An Army blogger silenced

Lt. Matthew Gallagher, writing under the pen name Lt. G., originally launched his blog, "Kaboom: A Soldier's War Journal," for his family and friends, but eventually the site drew tens of thousands of page views a month, The Washington Post reports.

But that all ended after Gallagher posted an entry without running it by his supervisors, as required by Army rules. "The blogosphere, as it's wont to do, went berserk," the Post states.
