	Well the flood gates are open now.

	Generally, anything one can do to attack Stephen Hitler is all to the
good in my books.  OK, he gets a couple of brownie points for defending
the northwest passage, but he has no need to go up there himself.  He's
not going to be personally manning the torpedoes.  I think his absence
could be tolerated if the fascists in power were actually going to do
something about HIV-AIDS, but they are clearly not and this is just
Hilter's way of saying that it's a "Gay and/or Black disease and we
don't care about them anyway."

	Yes, the media needs reform.  We are supposed to have the separation of
church and state, we also need the separation of government and private
indusrty and private industry and media and government and media maybe
to some extent.
	We need the media to stop taking government announcements like they
were God's own truth.
