After reading a Wall Street Journal editorial about the USA Patriot Act, I decided I should probably download a copy of it and read a little, just to see if I even understand what we’ve gotten ourselves into.
Halfway through the download, my computer crashed. My G4 does not crash, maybe every couple of months. I regularly have weeks of uptime and generally have open 10-20 applications, rebooting only when system updates require.
Nevertheless, trying to educate myself on the workings of my government and my computer goes bonkers. I’m not a conspiracy theorist by any means, but it makes one think.
