I have seen this story a couple times. Not sure it was here or how I ended up on it. Oops, now that I recall, there was freeper, who had it on his personal homepage.
I like the story but, something about it rang untrue.
I guess I should actually read this post but, the first few words led me to believe it something to do with the story about Barry O. being a Soviet plant.
I will read it tomorrow. Something woke me up and I realized my computer was still on.
Need more sleep.
I will update you manan with my thought on.
