At the risk of veering off-topic, there are so many things wrong with
this statement that I really don't know where to begin. At least you
didn't parrot Scott McNealy's snide "Get over it!"

If OVC is to become the trojan horse bearing a national internal
passport, you can say goodbye to my support, including my regularly
scheduled contribution.

To spare the list a flamewar, I'll take this to my blog
(http://www.rant-central.com). Interested parties are invited to
discuss this digression there.
