Just cause I had to go check: Kip Hawley is Director of the Transportation Security Administration, part of the Dept. of Homeland Security.

For some reason, I have a mental image of Mel Brooks in a German SS uniform.

I don't know about Kip Hawley, but his minions sure seem to meet the criteria for "idiot".

It's a DHS plot, the black helicoptors showed up and downed the server.

Actually those helicopters are dark grey.

Yep, the original has disappeared. Link changed to a Boing Boing article that excerpted some of the original.

True karmic timing: A group of suits I've done some consulting with in the recent past ask me today: Can you go to Wash DC with us to talk to DHS about evaluating some ORNL (Oak Ridge National Labs) spinoff technologies for their use... I played devils advocate for 30 minutes, told them I was an anarchist.. and they still want me to go.

I wonder if "Kip Hawley is an Idiot: is printed on my undershirt in a metallic ink... will they detect it when I walk in the door?

topspin, I have 3 airline trips planned over the next month. I'm wondering if it'll come around on the guitar by then... and if I have the guts to sing it in four part harmony with feeling when it does.
