Governor Brad Henry establishes the Operation Homefront Task Force

On February 14, 2005, Governor Brad Henry moved closer to the creation of a Military Family Relief Fund. He signed an executive order establishing the Operation Homefront Task Force that will help identify the most pressing needs of Guardsmen and their families. Gov. Henry said the 15-member panel will recommend what needs should be addressed by the relief fund, as well as what criteria should be set up to determine eligibility for relief grants. The task force will also identify other issues affecting Guard members, especially upon their return home from active duty. The proposed benefits package of “Operation Homefront” also directs that the State purchase a $250,000 life insurance policy for every Guardsman and provide tax exemptions for up to half of all veterans’ military pensions. Oklahomans would be able to contribute to the Military Family Relief Fund through an income tax check-off program.

OFF TOPIC

I only recently found your blog and wondered if you had any legal thoughts about the recent letter from the Tulsa World to a couple Oklahoma bloggers demanding they stop linking and excerpting to and from all newspaper content? Or if you were even aware of it? It's becoming a big deal, and the threat of legal action from traditional media to squelch blogger activism seems to be building.

I hope to look at this in more detail later. But, here is a nice summary of copyright law basics for you to look over in the mean time:

I’m impressed, I must say. Really rarely do I encounter a blog that’s both educative and entertaining, and let me tell you, you have hit the nail on the head. Your idea is outstanding; the issue is something that not enough people are speaking intelligently about. I am very happy that I stumbled across this in my search for something relating to this.
