      Both are excellent books as relevant today as when they were published.

      I have had problems downloading them from these sites in the past, though.

    2. New America Says:

      Mr. Ludwig makes an excellent point, and from that comes a simple – excellent – idea.

      Why doesn’t the VNN Special Project Unit work on developing a file server to store such valuable works, while we can?

      Solar General is losing works, and the online repositories for such are few, indeed.

      It just so happens that Theseus has a bookmark in his delivious bookmarks list describing how to do this in Ubuntu.

      Again, they might want to share some ideas with Bill White on this topic, as well.

      If nothing else, it would be a useful exercise for the VNN SPU.

      Of course, none of us have to do this…

      Robber Kills 5 Women at Store in Chicago Suburb
      TINLEY PARK, Ill. — The authorities in this suburb southwest of Chicago were engaged in a huge search on Saturday evening for a man they say shot and killed five women in a clothing store during a robbery attempt gone wrong.
      With help from about 10 nearby police agencies, the Tinley Park authorities searched for the man — described as wearing a black waist-length winter coat, jeans and a knit cap — with helicopters using infrared devices. They looked for him on public bus lines throughout the suburbs. And they studied every surveillance video they could find from stores in a mile-and-a-half radius.
      As night fell on the snow-covered strip mall where the shooting occurred, about 30 miles from downtown Chicago, Sgt. T. J. Grady of the Tinley Park Police Department said that no one had been arrested, but that law enforcement officials were “pulling out every stop we can.”
      Sergeant Grady said the police received a 911 call at 10:44 a.m. Saturday, summoning them to a Lane Bryant store in the mall, near Interstate 80. The police found five women dead in a back room, he said. The store had no video security system, the authorities said.
      Late Saturday night, the authorities had not released any of the victims’ names and were still trying to find some of their relatives. The women ranged in age from 22 to 37, said Chief Michael O’Connell of the Tinley Park police.
      At least one of the victims was an employee of the store, the police said, and it was unclear how many of the others were shoppers. At least one Chicago-area family told local newspapers that a relative, a social worker who had been shopping at the store, was among the dead.
      A witness outside the store saw a man fleeing through the front door, Sergeant Grady said, providing the authorities with the description — though a fairly broad one — that agencies throughout the region were distributing. The Chicago Police Department, which sent a helicopter to help in the search, said it had distributed the suspect’s description to all its police districts, giving special note to those with strip malls and other Lane Bryant locations.
      Just after the shooting, the strip mall here was locked down. People inside stores were ordered to stay put, and those outside were kept away. Officers could be seen canvassing shops and the rest of the mall, sometimes clutching their weapons while peering into parked cars. Search dogs were brought in with the hopes that a trail had been left behind.
      After about an hour, Sergeant Grady said, much of the lockdown ended. The police were convinced that the man was long gone. “We have to allow regular shopping, allow regular retail work to go back,” he said, explaining the decision.
      That left a peculiar scene several hours later, as shoppers, some oblivious to all that had gone on, browsed inside stores even as yellow police tape encircled parts of the parking lot. Some shops closed for the day, like a crafts store that bore a handmade yellow sign noting in marker that it would reopen Sunday. Others swiftly got back to work and were doing business at a fairly regular clip by late in the day.
      As they learned what had happened, many shoppers seemed stunned at the thought of such violence in Tinley Park, a rapidly growing village of about 60,000 straddling Will and Cook Counties.
      Patricia Parrish, 42, clasped her hands to her chest when she learned what had happened.
      Delores Thompson, 52, said, “Oh my god, that is unbelievable.” Ms. Thompson said she had moved to nearby Frankfort not long ago because she heard it was safe and had good schools. “I’d like to go home and make sure I locked my patio door,” she said.
      Tracey Jackson, 30, of nearby Matteson, described Tinley Park as a friendly place with a relatively modest crime rate and its share of “soccer moms.”
      “Usually, if you drop your wallet out here, someone will hunt you down to get it,” Ms. Jackson said. “This is a place where if you left your purse in your car, nobody is going to go bust out your window or anything.
      But, Ms. Jackson added, the shootings Saturday would be sure to change attitudes. “Now we’re going to be a little more on the alert,” she said.
      Around the state, condolences began pouring in from political and community leaders.
      “There is no imaginable justification for the deadly and random violence that stole those innocent lives in Tinley Park today,” Gov. Rod R. Blagojevich said in a statement.
      Back in the strip center in Tinley Park, Melissa Potempa, 32, an insurance agent, was in search of ketchup, blue cheese and peppers from a store here for a Super Bowl party. She said she had shopped at this Lane Bryant store in the past, but did not think she would any longer, not after this.
      Catrin Einhorn reported from Tinley Park, Ill., and Monica Davey from Chicago. Eric Ferkenhoff contributed reporting from Chicago.

      He is black. I heard on the news today. I bet the women were all white! They are calling it a “simple robbery”! No “hate crime’ here!
