We have recently seen a rather high profile suicide/murder
software engineer, Joe Stack, who was furious with the IRS
and flew his plane into its Austin TX office. (For his manifesto, click here

in his mind, they quite likely were. In my technical work, I have had co-workers who really were explosive experts or highly trained former military personnel. I can't help wondering if we aren't seeing an unfortunate trend
that might inspire copycats—and what that might mean.
