on a related note..

did you see the story in the NYT, http://www.nytimes.com/2006/10/04/us/04monitor.html

...about this dept of homeland security funded project to develop computer software to monitor international media to identify "potential threats" to the nation.

“We want to understand the rhetoric that is being published and how intense it is, such as the difference between dislike and excoriate”

(i guess they don't expect worry about the difference between appreciate and tolerate)

...better we have computers than say, sentient beings bothering about how (and why?) "those people" really feel about US...(no offense to computers intended)...

on that note, season three of battlestar galactica begins tonight
