So Jeb Bush has released his e-mails from his two terms as Florida governor.

That reminds me of the auditor who is out driving through the countryside with his girlfriend.  The GF sees a flock of newly-shorn sheep over in the pasture and says to her BF, “Oh, look dear, all those sheep have just been shorn.”  The auditor replies, “Yes, they have been … on this side.”

Forgive my skepticism, but I think there’s something here we’re not seeing.  I don’t know if it’s private e-mail accounts (gmail, yahoo, etc.), accounts using pseudonyms, or whatever.  But there’s something here we’re not seeing.  Could these e-mails be a shiny object meant to draw our attention away from something else?  Let’s stay tuned.  I don't trust these buggers.

Cyber Security Traps
Ever since the Internet blossomed in the 1990s, cybersecurity was built on the idea that computers could be protected by a digital quarantine. Now, as hackers routinely overwhelm such defenses, experts say cybersecurity is beyond due an overhaul.

Their message: Neutralize attackers once they're inside networks rather than fixating on trying to keep them out.
