"No experiment can be more interesting than that we are now trying, and which we trust will end in establishing the fact, that man may be governed by reason and truth. Our first object should therefore be, to leave open to him all the avenues to truth. The most effectual hitherto found, is the freedom of the press. It is, therefore, the first shut up by those who fear the investigation of their actions." --Thomas Jefferson to John Tyler, 1804.

SeaTimes infection?

A spooky note on the front page of the Seattle Times site today:

“You may have heard reports about viruses on seattletimes.com news stories. To the best of our knowledge, these kinds of attacks have never occurred by clicking on news articles. In general, malware attacks come from unscrupulous advertisers who target news and information sites across the country through a complex web of ad networks. If you experience anything suspicious on our site, do not click on it, shut down your machine, and then contact our Webmaster with as many details as possible.”

One hopes they will follow up and tell us more . . .
