Automation pioneer John Diebold dies at 79
John Diebold, a computer pioneer and, more recently, developer of the controversial "touch screen voting machines" has died.
Last year, many Democrats made much of a Diebold confidant's statement that he was committed to seeing that Ohio went for Bush in 2004.
I wonder how long it will be before the same conspiracy kooks at places like the Democratic Underground think Diebold was offed by the Bush administration to keep him quiet?
UPDATE: Not long, it seems.
MORE UPDATES: Silly me -- it seems John Diebold is not related to Diebold, Inc., the ones who made the voting machines.
