    Just received this, it's worth a read.

    In summary, "IE was wide open for a total of 200 days in 2004, or 54% of
    the year, to exploits that were "in the wild" on the Internet" while "The
    Firefox browser and its older sibling Mozilla had no periods in 2004 when
    a security flaw went unpatched before exploits started circulating on the
    Net. With the latest 1.0.4 upgrade, Firefox has retained its "patch-
    before-hackers-can-strike" record so far in 2005, as well."

    George Bush's War of Choice on Iraq is a totally unnecessary war.
    Every life lost, every limb lost, every disfigurement, every
    disability caused there is more blood on George W. Bush's hands,
    and on the hands of everyone who voted for George W. Bush.
