    Brought to you by the same folks who gave us the Maginot Line to stop Panzers. An eighty-year-old idea dusted off. Just as stupid.

    More so, really. Second only to global warming solutions in futility.

    Note the uses in the article of the phrases “If the system works” and “The hope is that” (!) “given the right array and frequency . . . ”

    Let me guess: this was an assignment turned in by hungover frat brothers the morning the assignment was le due?
