I need to issue a correction and an apology. There is no way Jesse Helms could be involved with the House of Representatives' pilot project because he is a Senator, not a Representative. That's the correction. The apology is this: It was inappropriate to imply that Senator Jesse Helms would not participate in an Internet project. Whatever the Senator's politics, and whether or not I agree with them, there is room on the Internet for all opinions.

And as long as I'm apologizing, just a quick note to clarify that the blurb for TidBITS #185 inappropriately implied that Microseeds no longer supports Rival due to a problem with Rival. We know of no problems with Rival and congratulate the authors on their admirable efforts to support existing users and enhance Rival. If only all companies were as diligent in their customer service.
