Hack a PC, Get Life in Jail (from wired.com)

"...CSEA's original language said in cases where miscreants knowingly attempt "to cause death or serious bodily injury" through electronic means, the punishment would be life imprisonment.

The thing that really bothers me the most about this is not knowing why "hackers" who would ruin peoples' lives will get life sentences and yet miscreants in the financial industry who basically do the same thing (and often ending up hurting even more people than the hacker ever could) only get light sentances in some country club "prison."

I'm working on a different style for my journal and decided to try ditching TABLEs altogether in favor of DIVs and CSS. The problem being older browsers that don't fully support CSS, so, I'm asking ya'll...
