In much of the same SPECTACULAR fashion you've come to expect, here iz your
56th god damned issue of Phrack mutherfuckin' Magazine.  Late?  Nono.  Late
would imply that there exists a publishing schedule of some sort.  We now know
this really isn't the case.  So, in actuality, this issue may in fact be
early.  We have our best people looking into it...


Riotz and protestz and retardz, OH MY!

JESUS CHRIST PEOPLE.  This whole Elian Gonzalez debacle can just goto hell.
And of course I mean that figuratively speaking.  I'm not so callous or jaded
as to wish harm on an innocent child, but I speak for a significant majority of
people when I say:

                        "Enough is e-fucking-nough".

Since November of 1999, the U.S. Government has entangled itself in an
embroiled political, social and economic mess that just needs to END.

Ok, here's the whole story in a nutshell.  Around Thanksgiving of last year,
this fisherman finds a kid floating in an innertube a few miles from Pompano
Beach, FL.  The fisherman does what any God-fearing Samaritan would do: he
pulls the kid out of the water and takes him to the hospital.  So the saga

And here's how it should end:

Elian should go back to Cuba with his biological father.  Sure, Cuba sucks,
but this is a six-year-old child whose father wants him to come home.  Since
when is it the US Government's job to act as social services for a sovereign
Communist Country family?  Oh, by the way, this has cost the U.S. Taxpayer
more than $580,000 so far.  And it's not over.


As it happens, apparently Elian has some (distant) relatives in the US who
managed to sneak out of Cuba. Congratulations.  Good for them.  So somehow,
these people seem to think they have a stake in all this.  Wonderful.  Kids
come running for the great taste of fifteen minutes of fame!

Ok.  And what about these relatives?  Well, they're nutz, for one.  Second of
all, they're hardly "close" relativez.  What, that one nutty chick is his
second cousin?  Does that even count?  Great-uncles, and their brothers aside,
a boy's FATHER is his FATHER.  Crikey.  If this was *my* kid, I'd be like: "Ok,
junior, get in the fucking car, we're going home".

Do any of these superfluous people realize what they're doing?  Nevermind the
fact that this little boy is probably going to be scarred in some horribly
repressed fashion, and all the money this is costing...  Wait no..  Actually
that's pretty much the crux of the issue.  Well, my issue with it.  I'm just
sick of it.  Gawd.

And what the hell is up with all the rioters?  Thuggish lowbrows seen on CNN
yelling "FUCK THIS COUNTRY" (after the INS snatch).  Hey guess what retard?  If
you don't like, go the fuck back to Cuba.  Like you even know what you're upset
about.  You just wanted an excuse to break shit and burn things (which they did

STILL HAVE IN ALL THIS?  Keep stretching those 15 minutez there buddy!  I must
say though, the open weeping on national television was very nice.  "The

Oh, and did I mention that someone named "Jesus Lizarazo" registered
eliangonzalez.com?  Who the crap hell iz that?

Stop the insanity.


Oh, by the by, there'z obviously been an overall format change.  Nothing too
major but I got real bored with the old one.  I think the racing stripez add a
nice touch.  Oh, and I hope you like Hex.  Coz I shure do.  Sorry.  No Phrack
World News this time around.  But how many of you guyz actually read it anyway?

    "...IMHO it hasn't improved. Sure, some technical aspects of the magazine
     have improved, but it's mostly a dry technical journal these days.  The
     personality that used to characterize Phrack is pretty much non-existant,
     and the editorial style has shifted towards one of `I know more about
     buffer overflows than you` arrogance. Take a look at the Phrack Loopback
     responses during the first 10 years to the recent ones. A much higher
     percentage of responses are along the lines of `you're an idiot, we at
     Phrack Staff are much smarter than you.`..."

     - Trepidity <delirium4u@theoffspring.net> apparently still bitter at not
       being chosen as Mrs. Phrack 2000.
