Joe Stack’s Piper Cherokee Manifesto

It's getting so you can't fly a plane into a federal office building and hope somebody will finally find your website. Though engineer Joseph Stack left an online statement to explain his last act of desperation against the IRS, it was deleted "in compliance with a request from the FBI." I guess his web hosts think the 1st Amendment has an FBI exemption. Even Google's cache was expunged. This has freed Reporters to characterize Stack's missive as a crazed rant. Nothing threatens the establishment like this conclusion: "Sadly, though I spent my entire life trying to believe it wasn’t so, ... violence ... is the only answer. The cruel joke is that [those] at the top have known this all along and have been laughing, at ... fools like me all along." I don't know about you, but when I hear that a self-made engineer-businessman who has his own plane, commits suicide on principles he has articulated in a manifesto, I'm curious to hear him out. 14779
