Kevin's previous subject: [svfig-open] Stupid Security Awards for 2003

If every one could express "sorrow", and had recourse to some public
condolence-servers... and could see stupidity's scope... and inference
engines re-presented our "delight", "sorrow", "hope", and such:

... may be getting us slack from blind priests' myopic grip of
compassionate intent.

Kevin's prior post (which subject I'd encapsulated into mine own prior and
this one)  lampooned social overhead of implementing "security" through
senseless (sensor-less, as in non-glasnost) gravity... through levity, I
get out from under that overhead:

For as long as I'm able, I'll cheer a land wherein I may freely choose to
encrypt or not... I'll grumblingly acknowledge a land where I feel obliged
to begin encrypting what I'd rather say freely, but !hey... for today...
!hurrah for the red, white, and blue.  -g... ecv

p.s... "plain text for plain text"... !hahahahahaha-ah-ha... yes, how
right you are, JP... thanks for asking, and thanks for clever thee

p.s... as to translation, internet affords one ready recourse to pursue
merely unfamiliar phrases... take "ecv"
