"Not only is the electrical grid wide open but so is the natural gas supply line. Here's an example of just how easy it would be to safely take out a natural gas pipe. Buy a car battery, a piece of glass tubing, and some plastic gloves. First, pour the acid from the battery into a suitable container, then go to one of the millions of gas pipes or relay stations around the world, attach the tube to the pipe with tape molding putty or whatever, pour the acid into the tube, and then walk away and let the acid eat through the pipe. Your onsite time is maybe two minutes." --hacker quoted by Derrick Jensen
The Derrick Jensen information you have been putting up reminds me always of why I have so doubted our governments version of September 11-it would be very easy at least from what I am reading on many web-sites since 2004 to take down the entire infrastructure of the US-attacking things like computer servers, power stations and other largely unguarded and easy to target crucial areas of energy production and information technology. I know these thoughts will be ridiculed-but I really think that a supposed terrorist organization that also supposedly hates the United States to the core of its being would have found other ways to attack us-ways that are perhaps not so spectacular -but in the end much more costly, chaos producing and deadly to the US and its allies. Some thoughts about the "Gladio" operations came to mind. This as you might know is where West European governments where blaming terrorism on left-wing terrorists -when really all the time the state spy agencies were working hand in glove with right wing fascist organizations to perform the attacks. Italy in the 1980s comes to mind-but certainly not the only nation affected. I apologize for this overly wordy comment-one in which I am sure I will be thought of as a "conspiracy nut" but some. The main reason for the comment was just to say how much I enjoy your writing-all the best to you!!
TWM: Naw, those kids are probably too young for George. Personally I never realized what a genius he was until I was in my 20s. And then he died.
I wonder to at the depiction of the sacrificial lamb, and how that's really just a matter of convenience at that moment... thought this seems to be a story about kids it's more like the adult world... almost a bit scary... but maybe not 1984... more lord of the flies...
bye for now...
And the playground scene, yes.
Though, oddly I was sometimes beat up by the foreign kids for being Canadian. Crow Jim!
And all the recently-arrived Brit kids came to me for protection from being called Limey and Chirper.
Ah Hamilton open air boxing ring during recess. Mostly aggressive Siciiian kids.
Home of the Whopper. "Cake eater!"...But I was Ukrainian.
... cuff to side of the head.
Builds character, I guess.
