Beyond the Black Stump...

«Each individual creates his or her own reality, and that reality can be as limitless as your imagination.» 
   -- WebDiva (Sandra Hall)

And the WebTribes chanted:  «Information wants to be free! »
but «There are no secrets in America, only gossip» (Richard
Rodriguez), so Mk signifies:
    «Question always the integrety of information

«Just as the strength of the Internet is chaos, so the strength of our liberty depends upon the chaos and cacophony of the unfettered speech the First Amendment protects.»
