While I appreciate the potential dangers of IW, the vulnerability of our
existing physical infrastructure has been and should be equally worry some.
Drive down 101 south of San Jose and look at the power interconnect within
a few feet of the freeway and think what a good pitching arm could do. Look
at the LA Aqueduct or the TWO water feeders that supply Manhattan. 

What me worry.


SAN FRANCISCO (AP) Utility officials increased security at power stations
around San Francisco on Friday after FBI investigators said someone
intentionally cut power to the city's downtown. 
"It was a deliberate act," said FBI spokesman George Grotz. "It was not an
accident, and it was not a computer intrusion."
