Before he became Bill Clinton's Vice-President, Al Gore wrote a book titled, "Earth in the Balance," his definitive position on the environment and what must be done to protect it.
A few years later, and with no known connection, Theodore Kaczynski, the Unabomber, wrote his manifesto, a rambling critique of late, 20th century technology.
Fox News anchor and columnist Tony Snow suggested that there might be parallels between the two pieces of literature. That set armchair analyst Ken Crossman to work... and the result was "The Gore Quiz." Ken was kind enough to allow us to enhance it a bit and offer to you "The G2K Problem: The Gore Quiz."
Below are quotes from Al Gore and the Unabomber's manifesto. Can you identify who wrote what? Respond to each, one at a time; we'll provide the correct answer right on the spot.

I got a job working at Panera Bread
I sometimes think that the main reason I even applied there is because I love eating there and Sarah does not... so now I eat there several times a week YAY
the job is ok but the somewhat daunting register system makes me nervous still. Everyone I've worked with so far seems nice though, even the managers... even the general manager is nice!

I found the greatest quote today
by D.H. Lawrence
"Brute Force crushes many plants. Yet the plants rise again.The Pyramids will not last a moment compared to the daisy. And before Buddha or Jesus spoke the nightingale sang, and long after the words of Jesus and Buddha are gone into oblivion the nightingale still will sing. Because it is neither preaching nor teaching nor commanding nor urging. It is just singing. And in the beginning was not a Word, but a chirrup."
I have a job interview in the morning and the same nerves that kept me awake every night before first day of school; audition; and other important things is keeping me up again.

all small individual supporters.
watch the money come in
always err on the side of individual liberty

These guys rule. I'm not one of them myself, although I play one online. They know the rules of debate, the Laws of Thermodynamics, and can explain evolution in fifty words or less. More concerned with how things ARE than how they should be, these are the people who will bring us into the future.
