Humor The heartland turned vicious this week when an Oklahoma town threatened to call in the FBI because its web site was hacked by Linux maker Cent OS. Problem is CentOS didn't hack Tuttle's web site at all. The city's hosting provider had simply botched a web server. This tale kicked off yesterday when Tuttle's city manager Jerry Taylor fired off an angry message to the CentOS staff. Taylor had popped onto the city's web site and found the standard Apache server configuration boilerplate that appears with a new web server installation. Taylor seemed to confuse this with a potential hack attack on the bustling town's IT infrastructure.

I live in Oklahoma City. Tuttle's not far away.

To be honest, I've never been there. I've never had occasion to go there. Actually, I think I might have driven through it once, but I had an eyelash fall briefly into my eye while I was in that area and I might have missed it.

However, as a result of this crisis, I did take the time to look up some info on our good neighbor, Tuttle.

Here is Tuttle on MapQuest:

I'd no idea that Tuttle had developed into such a metropolis. No. Metropolis doesn't cover it. Megalopolis would be a more accurate term.

Jerry Taylor is obviously a very busy guy. I mean... city managing that and all.

And Tuttle seems to have made itself a name, even having an entry on Wikipedia(!):

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tuttle%2C_OK

And if that's not cosmopolitan, I don't know what is.

I think we should give the guy a break, this time.

He's done good. He's shown good old American patriotism for his city, his citymen, and his loved ones.
