³ You have entered the United States government mainframe. Please enter your password,² says the computer.
³ Thank you, Mr. Smith.²
³ The file of Henry OıBrien is being loaded. Please stand by.²
³ File loaded, and deleted Mr. Smith.²
For Henry OıBrien, breaking into other computers is his hobby and life. Ever since the computer age (the twenty-first century), Henry OıBrien has been a computer artist. There isnıt a computer he canıt break into, even government mainframes. The only problem for him is that in his society if he is found hacking, heıll be banished. This is why Henry and other hackers like him must be very careful. The man they fear most is a federal agent named Mr.Smith who was known for catching hackers like Henry.
Henryıs society is run by computers and robots. Computers do everything from ordering out food to being a thinking, personal secretary. Robots do everything else the computer canıt do from cooking dinner to helping kids with homework. The only flaw to this society is that people like Henry can tap into and control the computers, robots and other electronics.
³ Thank you, Mr. Smith,² replies the computer. ³ The file of Henry OıBrien has been deleted. Please enter another file.²
³ Computer, how and when was this file deleted?² asks Mr. Smith.
³ The file was deleted at 11:58 pm today by an outside computer. Would you like me to trace the command?² asks the computer.
³ Hey maybe this new program will actually work,² says Mr. Smith
³ The command came from 8546 Macintosh Road.²
³ At last, I think we caught ourselves a hacker!²
Shortly after, Henry was breaking into a televisionıs circuits for fun and was switching the channels which probably caused confusion among the viewers. Suddenly, the door slams open, and fifteen men come in with assault rifles pointed at him.
³ Put your hands in the air, now!² screams one of the men.
³ So Henry, what are you up to, breaking into the CIA?² asks Mr.Smith jokingly. ³ Either way, you wonıt be hacking for a while because you wonıt have a computer after youıre banished!²
After being taken to the government building by the soldiers, Henry is questioned by officers and sentenced without trial to be banished from society. All records of his life are to be deleted.
³ How can you do this? I didnıt even have a trial,² shouts Henry.
³ We donıt want this thing blown up anymore than it already is,² says Mr.Smith.
³ You will be exiled tomorrow at 1:00 pm. Have a nice day Henry.²
³ I swear if its the last thing I do, Iım going to destroy all the technology, so youıll wish you never messed with Henry Oı Brien!²
³ Put him in his cell. I want five guards there around the clock!²
The next day at 1:00 pm, Henry is taken by five soldiers with guns into a van. Henry has no idea where they were taking him. He has no idea whether he is to be murdered or g-d knows what. Then the van stops, and the doors open.
³ Put your hands where I can see them!² shouts a soldier.
Henry got out of the van with his hands over his head and is ordered to kneel. He does so knowing his life was probably about to end. He heard the cocking of the gun and closes his eyes. Just then gun shots fly. When he opens his eyes, he sees the soldiers lying on the ground. He looks up and canıt believe it. On a nearby hill, stands Henryıs old friend Joe McDonald.
³ How did you know they were taking me here?² yells Henry.
³ The stupid government made a file of what they were doing with you. It was a good thing I found it. They were about to put it on disc, and then I would have never known,² replies Joe.
³ Well Iım glad you did, but now I got some business to attend to.²
³ First come back to my place. After all, I did save your life.²
³ Okay, maybe I can do my business on your computer.²
At Joeıs place, Henry and Joe enjoy some drinks and talk about old memories.
³ So whatıs this business youıre talking about?²

One Man One VoteOne Man, One Vote? Joseph Farkas thinks that every vote cast should equal every other vote. He feels that many people are voting without knowing why they are voting for a certain person or why they aren't voting for another. He says that a vote cast by a person with no or very little knowledge in the election should not count as much as a vote cast by a person who knows alot about the election. The people who care about who has an important role in the government should have a bigger say in who

To many businesses, this is only a mirage. This is because the 'low cost' of the business usually results in a 'high cost' for the employees. This high cost is lower quality workplace items, lower salaries, less benefits, etc. These costs create an upset workplace environment. Companies understand that the more efficient their workers are, the more productive their business will become. Altho
