   Aren't these the digital equivalents of bumper stickers? They are the
opinions publicly expressed to folks who don't care about the  sticker
adherer's opinions.

   The only cogent bumper sticker I recall seeing was on the rear trailer
frame of a cattle truck heading south on I-205. It read "Shit Happens" and I
took that as good advice to keep back or move to a different traffic lane.
