"TCP/IP is OK if you've got a little informal club, and it doesn't make
any difference if it takes a while to fix it."

Our congratulations go to a Burlington Vermont civilian employee of the
local Army National Guard base. He recently received a substational cash
award from our government for inventing a device for optical scanning.
His device reportedly will save the government more than $6 million a year
by replacing a more expensive helicopter maintenance tool with his own,
home-made, hand-held model.
Not suprisingly, we also have a couple of money-saving ideas that we submit
to the Pentagon free of charge:
a. Don't kill anybody.
b. Don't build things that do.
c. And don't pay other people to kill anybody.
We expect annual savings to be in the billions.
