Anybody use google today?

I noticed this morning that using Google search, the main page asks me to help stop the new Anti Piracy Bill from passing. If you click on it, it takes you to a page where they'll mail congress for you. I just found it interesting.

Disgraceful.
BBC News is my homepage.
I launch Google if I'm looking for something, and so far haven't seen anything but the default search page.
