A Big Hacking Arrest

I wrote a quick WIRED story today about the arrest in Spain over the weekend of one of the world’s top spammers.

“Father Mychal Judge, chaplain, FDNY: Good days. And bad days. Up days. Down days. Sad days. Happy days. But never a boring day on this job. You do what God has called you to do. You show up.

No matter how small. You have no idea what God is calling you to. But he needs you. He needs me. He needs all of us.”

Garrett M. Graff, The Only Plane in the Sky: An Oral History of 9/11

“Jean Potter, Bank of America, North Tower, 81st floor: "I would leave the house everyday and say to him the last line of this movie, The Story of Christ, "just remember, Jesus said 'I am always with you'. That's how I would leave him in the morning as I would go to work.”
