Thanks Mitchell,

This is a MUST read!!

Thanks Paula, for this Eye opener:

" If the President continues to pursue his present course of restrained activity and if he fails to engage in crisis-oriented action and problem-solving, the Y2K crisis could well go down in history as the worst instance of malfeasance in public office in the history of the nation."

It's ALL over...time's up...BRACE FOR IMPACT!

-- K. Stevens (kstevens@ It's ALL going away in, August 26, 1999.

"If those in roles of public and private sector responsibility do not significantly increase their efforts to act to minimize the harmful and disastrous impacts of Y2K and the embedded systems crisis, Y2K may turn out to be the largest, best studied, most assessed, monitored, talked about, and planned for, and, yes, even best understood catastrophic event in the recorded history of humankind. It may teach the lesson that knowledge and understanding are worthless if we do not act in accordance with what we know and understand."

-- Brooks (, August 26, 1999.

Ray: Don't get me wrong. I believe the President by virtue of his office should take the lead in Y2K awareness. However, Congress(with a few minor exceptions) cannot be held blameless. They likewise are our elected officials who are supposed to be overseeing the welfare of this nation. If Y2K is more than a BITR , and I believe it will be, hopefully the American electorate will be able to recognize the errors of their elected officials and hold them responsible. If Monicagate is any indication, may God have mercy on us all!

A long read and worth it. But who is listening? All the signs are there yet none see nor hear ...

-- Ashton & Leska in Cascadia (, August 27, 1999.

Defintely a long read but also definitely a MUST! Actually, I'm left somewhat speechless -- better go before I say something stupid.

-- grngrl (, August 27, 1999.

Neil, agree wholeheartedly.

I predict the president will take the lead on y2k right after christmas. We don't want to panic all those last minute shoppers.

-- y2k dave (, August 27, 1999.

I had actually been hoping I wouldn't find this. I have been a GI for a long time and was starting to believe some of the press in spite of myself. But this paper confirms my worst fears and it is exactly right on when describing the politics, etc. This deception by the government has reached an all time high on this.
