I was surprised they paid money for actual stars to appear in it, as if they expect a return for their money from that. I dunno - maybe they figured a bunch of system admins were watching and they wanted them to know that IBM PCs run good linux servers.

Me, I just enjoyed the Muhammud Ali segment

I won't dispute that Pearl Harbor was a military target, and certainly think that the camps were up there with what the Germans were doing. But they still attacked the sleeping giant to provoke us into this thing...
