From: "O'Brien, Linsey"

Excerpted-from: Tasty Bits from the Technology Front:

 Text messaging in modern warfare. Philippine guerrillas are sending
 insults to their opponents via SMS, using the address books of
 captured cellphones. The US Marines who played loud rock-n-roll at
 Gen. Noreiga are looking positively grown-up by comparison.

P.S. They also mention that the so-called serious intellectuals at the NYT
have succeeded in splitting the best seller lists (now available online
only 1 week stale) into kid's books and all others, so as to move that
pesky wizard out of their way.
