Thats true. While Im at home my ISP(@home or comcast now I guess) does
have a news server. But, my current ISP is my school (WVU) and they ave
no newserver, at least not one that they let me know about. Are there
any external news servers that I could get access to?
"Eternal vigilance is the price of liberty: power is ever stealing from
the many to the few. The manna of popular liberty must be gathered each

hand entrusted with power becomes, either from human depravity or esprit
de corps, the necessary enemy of the people. Only by continual
oversight can the democrat in office be
prevented from hardening into a despot: only by unintermitted agitation
can a people be kept sufficiently awake to principle not to let liberty
be smothered in material
prosperity... Never look, for an age when the people can be quiet and
safe. At such times despotism, like a shrouding mist, steals over the
mirror of Freedom" - Wendell
