Dumbass of the Day, Runner-Up

Barely missing the title today is the person(s) responsible for this amazing piece of irony (from Macintouch):

The US Department of the Interior, with repeated “F” grades in computer security, and repeated Internet cutoffs by court order for poor computer security, now requires everyone to take Web-based computer security training. The training works only with Windows, Internet Explorer, and Windows Media Player. [Emphasis mine. -cl]

Let’s see…teach people computer security on the least secure platform in the world. Smart. Really.

“Those who do not learn from history are doomed to repeat it.”
