Michael was married to my cousin Andrea.  I last saw him at TIFF two years ago.  Gutsy and rash at times, he was far too young to die.

Ah, yes.  When clearly at fault and on the wrong foot, hide your basis, lest it be found faulty.

See how protected you are!  While the government can't collect the data, it's OK for a third party (the telco) to be constrained to do so.  Shame on you, Judge Pauley!

Ah, yes!  Missiles and drones to "combat" violence!  Welcome fans of the oxymoron.  And while the US can spend money on these weapons, it cuts food stamps.  Way to go, Obama.

This is a beginning!  The NSA and the CIA need to be monitored and constrained further.

Ah, yes.  The Confidential Report so confidential that the Oversight Committee can't see it!  Is this the CIA or Control?  Does the CIA possess the Cone of Silence?  Will Agent 99 reveal the truth?

Bravo, Ted! Doug was the font of ideas. The instantiation of the mouse was but a beginning. That great demo, nearly 45 years ago, showed many more possibilities. Just where we'd be if, instead of nabbing concepts for profit (as Steve Jobs did), the future industry had actually taken those ideas and fostered them, we'll never know. And it's 15 years since Bardini, in "Bootstrapping," limned the rise and decline of SRI and Doug's notions of "coevolution."

As a (downtown) Torontonian, our mayor is (and has been) nothing but an elephantine horror show.

The Cone of Silence comes true.  Remember "Get Smart"?
