Linux Cuba recently launched its own answer to Windows this week, or, in the bigger picture, what the Cubans are calling "US Hegemony." Nova, the new open source OS being offered by the Cuban government, is being made to boot out US-based Microsoft products.

Fica?

The NSA was given the OK to spy on U.S. citizens by the Bush administration. But then the IRS pointed out that the NSA was liable for a hefty "spy tax" for each employee involved in an instance of that, which at least temporarily curtailed the practice while NSA accountants looked for a loop-hole. No further details exist on the resolution. Not surprising, as the inside joke within the department is that NSA stands for "Never Say Anything".

Sometimes, where PR and political pressure fail, bureaucratic inertia and budgetary complications can succeed.

I think he meant "FISA". ;-)
