    Steve, you should focus your "stupid/lunacy" complaints on senator
    Charles Schumer (D-NY).  He fears U.Calgary will turn into a "digital
    training ground for future cyber-terrorists."  You can listen to him
    (in context!) at if you
    don't believe me. Schumer's audio comes from a February 2002 senate
    hearing where White House flunky Richard Clarke reserved the right to
    NUKE China if they invade the U.S. with a computer virus.
    I agree wholeheartedly with you, Steve.  From my follow-up column:
    "I'll extract my tongue from my own cheek so we can clear the air...  
    You'll find a big difference between me and people like senator
    Schumer.  He'll mean it if he declares Canada a cyber-threat.  He'll
    want you to fear the wrath of Calgary's student body.  He'll demand
    FBI background checks for computer science teachers & students."
