We take this minute for something really important

You'll pardon me if I don't want to send you another of my usual
articles about Linux or Open Source. I'd rather not write about the
alleged evils of Microsoft. I don't want to complain about the
misappropriation of public intellectual property by
private interests and their lawyers. That stuff seems entirely out of
place today.

So does a lot of the editorializing about an attack on the United States or
on the U.S. economy. This was not an attack on America, although that
was certainly the intent. Many, if not most, of the companies hurt by
today's madness
had headquarters far from America's shore. It wasn't America's economy
that was hurt and terrorized -- it was thousands of secretaries,
salesmen,
computer operators, and janitors. Ordinary people trying to make a
living. They have been devastated, as have been their friends neighbors
and families.
