For those who are upset at the CBS evening news for misusing the
word hacker on last Wednesday's (?) show and want to give them a little
call, I'll tell you their phone number.

CBS evening news, NY 212/975-3691

If you tell them you're upset by the misuse of the term 'hacker' as
being the same as 'system cracker' and leave your name (so they'll know
that you're a real person (not just a crank), they may feel upset enough to
publicly announce their misuse of the term. My guess is that 1000 or so
phone calls would be enough. What do you think?

<<DISCLAIMER>> - I am not suggesting that you call the CBS evening news, I
am merely providing their telephone number (a matter of public record) to
make it easier for you to call should you decide that's what you want to
