    This comes as little surprise, given the public's desire for black and
    white clarity in an increasingly gray and low-contrast world.  Kevin is
    certainly no angel, yet neither is he the demon that Markoff portrayed
    with such broad strokes.
    I cannot help but wonder where Shimomura's hand is in all this.  Though
    obviously self-centered, he initially struck me as a man who valued
    dignity more than pride.  I recall him speaking of 'honor' with regard to
    this case.  At this time I can only hope those were not simple words.
    This gross exaggeration of what transpired is patently dishonorable.

    For what it is worth, I will take what time I can off work to cover the
    Mitnick trial first hand.  I will bring what I learn to ISN.
