	What's this, a flame the policy process week? Do you have
 specifics in mind, or mere snide comments in reserve? If you do have
 specifics, please point them out, so one may indeed improve the
 policy document.

 Far back in the mists of ancient time, in the great and glorious days
 of the former Galactic Empire, life was wild, rich and largely tax
 free.  Mighty starships plied their way between exotic suns, seeking
 adventure and reward among the furthest reaches of Galactic space.
 In those days, spirits were brave, the stakes were high, men were
 real men, women were real women and small furry creatures from Alpha
 Centauri were real small furry creatures from Alpha Centauri.  And
 all dared to brave unknown terrors, to do mighty deeds, to boldly
 split infinitives that no man had split before -- and thus was the
 Empire forged. Douglas Adams, _The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy_
