    New Search Engine Promises to Keep Your Data Private

    Private.me is easy to use, but unlike Tor, the Web anonymizer that’s popular with the most privacy-minded Internet users, it does not prevent third party websites from gaining information about visitors after they arrive on the sites.

    You can't -go- to the Interweb. It doesn't weigh anything. It's virtually virtual.

    Provision for free medical attendance and nursing, for clothing, for food, for housing, for the education of children, and a hundred other matters, might with equal propriety be proposed as tending to relieve the employee of mental strain and worry. --- These matters obviously lie outside the orbit of congressional power.
