Somes schools will voluntarily affiliate with NGOs trafficing in
laptops by the palette, and the NGOs won't mind if they see the
hardware going to intelligent uses.  So it's not an adversarial
relationship with the schools in all necks of the woods.  But it is in
some.  We live in a diverse world.  What's going on in the so-called
Empire State on the Atlantic side of North America is one National
Geographic story among many.  I don't set my own personal watch by the
New York Times, that much is certain.
