Barbara Jordan on impeachement

Yikes, I'm on google and so is everybody on DU

This is not good. How does this work? Somehow, I thought it wouldn't go worldwide. Don't you have your own cloud or something? A very large backup disk? I have said things on DU that I do not want in the general public. Do I have to censor myself? Please explain. Thank you.

The man's right to privacy outweighed the woman's claim for child support payments from him, the ruling said.
