Ron,    (01)

Thanks for forwarding those notes.   But the slowness and chaos
of the federal gov't in responding to the new opportunities can
be traced to one disastrous mistake:  putting a moron into the
oval office instead of the man who sponsored the Internet.    (02)

People made a lot of jokes about Al Gore "inventing" the
Internet, but that wasn't the verb that Gore mentioned.
What Gore did was to take the initiative in sponsoring the
legislation that put together the many, many diverse
protocols of the 1980s under the same umbrella.    (03)

Without that initiative in the 1980s, the WWW would not have
been possible in the 1990s.    (04)
