The city's computer system is still in the grips of ransomware. Oh my. Mr. Mayor Cory 'Butterball' Mason has no idea of what to do. He regurgitates what he hears from the IT people, but he doesn't understand the fundamental process that is occurring. While he and the IT people are dealing with the symptoms of the attack, the ransomware's creators are mining the system's data. Anyone who has ever paid a property tax bill or otherwise interacted with the city is now vulnerable to a similar attack. The "ransom" that the malware's creators want is not money, but, rather, information. They are getting plenty of that.
Just like anyone connected to Butterball is getting plenty of tax dollars. Butterball likes the high life. However, the higher you are, the further you fall. I wonder if he'll bounce?
In honor of Abraham Lincoln's birthday, I present the following video:
Mr. Lincoln was an extraordinary man. Too bad we have had so few leaders like him. At this point, our system of governance is so corrupt, it may be beyond saving. Only a heavy dose of honesty will tell. And that's not likely to happen anytime soon.
"Racine County launches new website for mental health resources" reads the headline on a JournalTimes.com story. The website, RacineCountyFamilyResources.com, offers a lot more than mental health help. The site offers 21 categories that you can choose from. Or just enter a question or statement, and your location/zip code. This is a great resource and I thank the Journal Times for publicizing it.
I also thank the JT Irregulars for turning me on to Americans Against the Democratic and Republican Parties. Their title says it all. For once, the truth:
Oh my, I'm quite late in posting this. Oh well. I love you all. Forever and ever. Amen.
Please be sure to respect one another. It's our best hope for peace.
