Microsoft supported by dead people

Author: JT Smith

"Apparently the dead are fed up with the government's antitrust case against Microsoft
Corp. According to a report in the Los Angeles Times Thursday morning, letters purportedly
written by at least two dead people have made their way onto the desk of Utah Attorney
General Mark Shurtleff. The letters asked Shurtleff to go easy on the company.

According to the article, the letters, along with those of 400 Utah citizens, are part of a
nationwide "grassroots" campaign orchestrated by pro-Microsoft groups Americans for
Technology Leadership (ATL) and Citizens Against Government Waste. The groups receive
some funding from Microsoft but won't disclose how much." More at australia.internet.com.
