Quick Hits

Microsoft and other email clients should be building this sort of thing into their product. It's an encryption tool which prevents your email from being read on the internet. I suspect that once people get over their fear of spyware/malware/Trojans, etc, they will turn their attention to this big, ugly gaping hole in security. For the average user, it's a bit of a pain because both the sender and receiver have to be using the same encryption software. Which is one reason why it should be built into the email client.

To add to the outrage of the Abu Ghraib story, the lawyer for chief defendent, Charles Graner, compared the oft seen picture of the prisoners stacked, naked, into a pyramid to cheerleaders. According to Reuters:

"Don't cheerleaders all over America form pyramids six to eight times a year. Is that torture?"

Now, would someone please post a picture of naked cheerleaders in a pyramid so we can do a proper comparison? (That was sarcasm, folks).
