**********  Year 2000 In The News Online

I've only included a few of the clippings
added to the year2000.com press clippings page in an
effort to keep the length of this newsletter manageable.
You can find hyperlinks to all the clippings in our

Cliff's Picks:

----------  Trying to pass the buck:  Does anybody have a
            mirror for Mr. Gore?

According to this story:

     "Gathered at the long table in the Cabinet room of the
     West wing, the president's Cabinet recently listened to
     Vice President Al Gore - 'the techno-nerd,' as some at the
     gathering have described him - drone on about a technical
     glitch that will hit most computers in the year 2000."

     [snip]  "Americans, he said, will hold the White House
     accountable. Looking around the table, Mr. Gore warned
     that "one of you" will likely get singled out as personally
     responsible for the administration's failure to get on top
     of this problem."

Earth to Mr. Gore.  Given that he is the one that the public
identifies as "the techno-nerd," given that he has failed to make (to
our knowledge) a single public speech educating the public about the
dangers of the Year 2000 computing problem, and given that he is
likely to run for election in the Year 2000, it is hard to imagine
that anyone is more likely than Mr. Gore to be singled out as the one
responsible for the administration's failure to tackle this issue...

The Politics of Year 2000 Computer Glitches

----------  Making a buck instead of passing it...

     "Doomsayers warn that the Year 2000 computer bug could
     shake international markets, trigger a global recession
     and cost $600 billion to fix worldwide.  So, you probably
     want to know if you can make a buck off of it."
