Knights Take Bishop

The Associated Press today published some excerpts from threatening letters sent by the now-arrested, would-be pipe bomber calling himself "the Bishop." And even if he hadn't chosen an incredibly lame supervillain name, his diabolical scheme was straight out of Austin Powers: he wanted investment firms to pump up the share price of two companies so his stock options would be worth more. Stock options. I mean, seriously, doesn't anyone just ask for small, unmarked bills any more?
