Lets just cutto the chase, shall we? You claim: " Being stupid is not a defense in a court of law. Although he has demonstrated a certain lack of mental capacity by even trying this stunt, he's still not dumb enough to be considered retarded, although *that* should have been his diminished capacity defense." I disagree. For you to understand *why* he left the equivalent of virtual post-it note saying he'd looked around a bit, you'd have to understand how Aspergers patients interact with normal people. I've dealt with several on usenet and they are absolutely klewless rgarding whats proper behavior and what isn't. This guys laywer is claiming his clients Apergers Syndrome is to blame. I agree. Why? Because he was probably hacker #3833923 to break in to NASA. He just happened to be dumb and honest enough to give NASA's dopey sysadmins a friendly heads up. So of course, honesty is rewarded with the hose. Brilliant.

Too bad it didnt get better after I left Arizona 10 years ago. Now the repug-led legislature is trying to privatize the buildings and funnel yet more money into the pockets of the people who elected them. This is the same idiotic type of idea as making all the interstate into Toll roads.
