    118 PCs, so far, booted off network for AIM virus

    118 computers have been shut off the network due to infections known as botnets over Instant Messenger as of Oct. 12.

In fact, my love of peace is precisely the reason I am a conservative Republican, and that is the reason I wanted to go celebrate the crucial victory of our commander in chief.
