Yeah, I've been worried about something like that for years now. That's why I 
moved to SF from the Midwest. I've been working on a project that it seems 
certain people "out there" don't like. And also among my friends I keep too 
many friends of dark complexion, foreign origin, or the wrong religion. 

These days, one can't be "too paranoid"; and I expect the Thought Police to 
kick in my door at any moment. If that happens, it just proves that they are 
more paranoid than I am. I mostly read ancient literature, and spend my life 
deep in the past. 

Oh well, you can't please everybody!
