I've been told the Intel did not want to prosecute, but Oregon wanted to
test their laws and ran with it.  Feel free to add salt to taaste; I so

your name, and cast out demons in your name, and do many mighty works
in your name?" And then will I declare to them, "I never knew you;
depart from me you evildoers." -- Matt 7:20-23, RSV
