My mom, who has had the same e-mail account for about ten years, is suddenly experiencing problems with her account; mail is delayed going both in and out. She also swears that she hears clicks on the phone sometimes, plus a number of other weird things have happened, i.e. my sister and I both ordered credit cards - from two different companies - which never showed up, and I posted something on an online profile which appeared with an anti-Bush comment erased. Mom's conclusion is that we are being monitored, since we are a family of 4 registered Democrats who were active in the last election (or, at least, Mom was) and who all receive numerous listserv emails from JohnKerry.com, NARAL Pro-Choice Network, ActForChange, etc. Some days I think she's being paranoid; other days I think she could very well be right. Anyway, here is the e-mail she sent me yesterday, which I found highly amusing despite the possible circumstances:

Jess,
It just took a full 30 seconds for that last email to send so I guess I am being monitored again.......I feel so important.....
Hi to whomever is reading this......we are not subversive people or a danger to society in general so maybe you could find somebody else to fuck with who might be a real problem....and then maybe our idiot president will tell you that you are doing a heckuva job. Or maybe he will send you on a hunting trip with Dick Cheney....
