Letter to the Editor,
Russian computer hackers
Boris and Igor, twin teen brothers living in Moscow, Russia are laughingly discussing all their previous successful computer hacks to date and they are also thinking about what their next big hacking mission might be.
Boris: Remember when we messed with the American presidential election. We got into all those computers of that Democratic Party. And those emails we hacked went viral and caused that lady Hillary to lose and that guy Trump to win. That was a lot of fun.
Igor: Yes and the Americans are still talking about it all over their news media. They’re blaming Putin.
Boris: Well poor Putin and his bungling spy guys who couldn’t do all the stuff we’ve been able to do.
Igor: Then we messed up the Academy Awards show. We got the winner of the Best Picture award all mixed up. That was also a lot of fun.
Boris: And remember how we got all those great scoring plays into the computer of the New England Patriots so they could be the winners of the Super Bowl game.
Igor: I really enjoyed messing with their big football game.
Boris: What do you think we should do next?
Igor: How about messing with all those dating websites, wouldn’t that be fun?
Boris: Yes, getting all these people matched up with people they can’t stand and really hate. It would be a great, big, funny mess to watch on video.
Igor: Like getting Democrats dating Republicans and getting progressive far left wingers dating conservative far right wingers.
Boris: I love it. You’re a genius.
Igor: Well, I’m half of the genius team. If it wasn’t for you we would never to able to do everything we’ve been able to do together. Remember we make a great team.
Boris: And the best part is they’ll never catch us.
Igor: Who would ever think that two teenage boys living in Moscow could possibly pull off a stunt like this?
Boris: Nobody in the whole wide world could ever imagine it to be us.
