3 cheers and a 21 gun salute to Mr. Gene Heskett as well. I've been in
contact with all of my Senators and Representatives this week and last,
to ignite a few small fires to get some rabble-rousing started myself.
It's the Irish in me. 

Back to my "Power & Authority" rant, it seems we have small people in
local state offices with incredible powers with the ability to operate
in total secrecy. This is not some pipe-dream conspiracy theory, it's
real, up close, personal and happens to be in my face. I just found some
agencies working for Freedom of Information actions and they even
provide a form to fill out to request same. It's got teeth, too. I like
teeth in a document, which it will automatically compose using your
fill-in the blanks information. Really nifty. And, of all things, it's
run by students!! http://www.splc.org/default.asp So, there you go Gene
and Claude... the younger generation is not asleep. God Bless 'em. 

BTW, this thread, IMHO is appropriate to us, as not only "Fedora Users"
but as an extended community / family who share computer related
discussions of all kinds. Int this case SELinux spawned this

For anyone to expect that we all just shut-up and produce answers on
demand is like asking seals to bark for no fish. It's degrading to the
seals who just might get tired and swim away. You can hold down the
shift key, mouse click on the start of the thread, scroll down to the
bottom of the thread, click on the bottom-most entry and hit "delete"
just as easily, without dumping some "shoulds" on us and how to behave.

My father, Victor Moore (Vic) used to say:
"There are two Great Sins in the world...
..the Sin of Ignorance, and the Sin of Stupidity.
Only the former may be overcome." R.I.P. Dad.
