    Thanks, Roz, for adding this much-needed perspective. The FBI once
    started their own "underground" newspapers in Austin and Indianapolis
    in order to try to discredit the Rag and the paper I then edited in
    Bloomington. These "dirty tricks" campaigns were often chillingly
    effective at creating divisiveness, paranoia, and sometimes
    internecine violence.
