***** To join INSNA, visit http://www.insna.org ***** Absent minded today (and bemused by being a democratic threat). But I forgot to add my *footnote on technocracy. Here it is, courtesy of Tom Lehrer: "Once the rockets are up, who cares where they come down That's not my department," says Wernher von Braun http://members.aol.com/quentncree/lehrer/vonbraun.htm and Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tom_Lehrer (There are at least 4 other versions floating around on the web. I don't trust any of them for accuracy). Note, this is from memory as the LP is at home, but if anyone cares, we'll listen tonight and jot down the lyrics as Tom sings.
