One could not learn history from architecture any more than one could learn it from books. Statues, inscriptions, memorial stones, the names of streets ? anything that might throw light upon the past had been systematically altered. (1.8.85)

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.
