THE SPHINX—SECRECY AND SECURITY

Sphinx Main
The Editor:   That is a complicated title, Lois.   Can you shed some light on it for our loyal readers ?

Privacy Cat:  I sure can.  The title is misleading.   The government peddles secrecy like a Secret Service Slut.  All they do is hide everything behind national security.   Here is an example of the government being stumped by an iphone that is encrypted.  Do the many terrorist groups release their secret codes ?

The Editor:   Does The Sphinx use encrypted communications, PC ?

Ralphie Cat:  We certainly do, we have a bunch of proprietary information, here is a sample of one of Amigo’s secret communications.  It is none of the government’s business what we do, if it is legal.  Get a Foxtrot, Uniform, Charlie, Kilo, India, November, Golf,——warrant for probable cause.

The Editor:  That pretty much shows where Cumberland/The Sphinx stands on privacy, what about security, RC ?

Thirty Clip Cat:  No one on Earth can provide you security except yourself, if you are rich or a politician it is paid for either way.  For most citizens the Second Amendment is their protection—from the government and just plain old everyday killers—who will kill you for a rumor, piece of pizza, or nothing.

Astronomy Picture of the Day

Leonids Above Torre de la Guaita

Explanation: Leonids Meteor Shower came to an impressive crescendo in 1999. Observers in Europe saw a sharp peak in the number of meteors visible around 0210 UTC during the early morning hours of November 18. Meteor counts then exceeded 1000 per hour – the minimum needed to define a true meteor storm. At other times and from other locations around the world, observers typically reported respectable rates of between 30 and 100 meteors per hour. This photograph is a 20-minute exposure ending just before the main Leonids peak began. Visible are at least five Leonid meteors streaking high above the Torre de la Guaita, an observation tower used during the 12th century in Girona, Spain. In 2014, over the next few nights, the Leonids meteor shower will again peak. This year, although the crescent Moon should not create much competing skyglow, the Earth is predicted to pass through a more moderate stream of debris left over from Comet Tempel-Tuttle than in 1999, perhaps resulting in as many as 15 visible meteors per hour from dark locations.
