+ - Congressman Orrin Hatch caught pirating software

However, as reports, Hatch's own website uses copyrighted software without permission — a Javascript menu system developed by a British company. Is Mr. Hatch accepting volunteers to go through his home and office destroying all his computers, or were his comments to Congress just a bunch of hypocritical hot air?"

lad to know there's at least one person out there who gets it!

Logic is a pretty flower that smells bad.
