	Similar things have been said in the past when AOL has done 
stupid things, and yet they still survive, and even thrive.  Same for 
Microsoft.  Or the War Criminal in the White House.

	Frankly, despite all the wailing and gnashing of teeth by 
everyone else, I don't see any of these situations changing any time
