Okay, that's the second slipup in the Matrix :-).  Why did Mutt and Nano 
freak out on me?

Well, then, I'll stick with the decision I made six months ago:
the autohinter looks worse than the bytecode interpreter.

You know, this is the first slipup in the Matrix I've experienced
since I switch to Linux.  (I hope you get that: 9 months ago I was
a MS-employee.  I mean to say: taboo subject about which we are
embaressed so we'll pretend it isn't worth discussing...
Less than complete intellectual forthrightness... Patent issue
we cannot overcome...)

Not that it's a big deal, just find the arbitriness curious...
Everything else is rational.

The California Recall was like the British Prime Minister election.
It was a vote of No Confidence with a short election cycle.
