I guess the moon is in phase with some star somewhere, and now it's time to
argue who's root is he "real" root...  Barf.  Enough already  -  we all have
our own roots. one guy follows Vixies roots, while I typically roll my
own.  Many others do other things.  

The final point of this insanity is that there is NOT a single root.  Hasn't
been for a hell of a long time, and I suspect that there never will be again.

The networking concepts ride on the social concepts (like PRI ridess on
T1).  all of these paradigms are equally valid, even if universally despised
for it.

I sayth to you, the parties in interest: Deal with it.  It aint gonna change.

If Governments really want us to behave like civilized human beings, they
should give serious consideration towards setting a better example:
Ruling by force, rather than consensus; the unrestrained application of
unjust laws (which the victim-populations were never allowed input on in
the first place); the State policy of justice only for the rich and 
elected; the intentional abuse and occassionally destruction of entire
populations merely to distract an already apathetic and numb electorate...
This type of demogoguery must surely wipe out the fascist United States
as surely as it wiped out the fascist Union of Soviet Socialist Republics.

The views expressed here are mine, and NOT those of my employers,
associates, or others.  Besides, if it *were* the opinion of all of
those people, I doubt there would be a problem to bitch about in the
first place...
