    6. Well isn't this convenient

    Al Gore became a senior partner in Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers last year. I wonder what his motives were?

    Yes that comment is gone. Can't tell the DUmmies the truth you know. Some of them might wise up and they can't have that.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kleiner...ufield_&_Byers

    Notable members of the firm include partners John Doerr and Brook Byers, as well as high-profile individuals such as Sun Microsystems co-founder Bill Joy (who joined as partner in January 2005), former U.S. Secretary of State Colin Powell (who joined in July 2005 in the newly-created position of "strategic limited partner"), and former U.S. Vice President Al Gore, who joined as partner in November 2007[3][4] as part of a collaboration between KPCB and Gore's firm Generation Investment Management (GIM) to promote green technology, business and policy solutions.[5] In 2008, John Gage of Sun Microsystems joined Gore as a Partner. [6][7]
    I notice they don't erase the name "Rumsfield" even though it is just speculation and isn't true, and they erase the name of their "hero" Gore who really is one of those greedy capitolists that will profit off of this.

    And I thought it was the fault of drunken college students on spring break bringing it back from Mexico.
