let me know if  you guys get tired of this stuff.  i just grab what looks like it would be interesting to all, but if you are tired of it, or depressed by it, say so.
.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

And you can bet the "Security" fix will have spybots in it that will check out emails by the zillions.  A good spybot as part of a anti-Hacker security program is better than a telephone wire top any day.

I just got a notice from comcast regarding a change in policy.
