Has anyone read DeLillo's "The Names"? It takes
place in Greece and is about a group of separatists
whose methods to their madness have to do with
cryptological anagrams. It's one of my favorite.


Greek group bombs H-P in support of Unabomber

ATHENS, Greece (Reuters) - A previously unknown Greek
group claimed responsibility on Monday for a bomb attack
against the offices of computer company Hewlett-Packard Co.
in a show of support for U.S. ``unabomber'' Theodore

Police said an anonymous caller told the ET3 state television
the attack in the northern city of Salonika early Monday was the
work of the ``Revolutionary Subversive Fraction - Commando
Unabomber'' group.

A police official told Reuters that two makeshift bombs, made
of liquid gas canisters and a slow-burning fuse, exploded
within seconds of each other, causing damages to the building
housing the Hewlett-Packard offices. There were no injuries.

He said a third bomb at the same premises failed to explode.

Kaczynski pleaded guilty in Washington last week to a 17-year
bombing spree that killed three people and wounded several
others. He accepted life imprisonment in a plea deal that spared
him the death penalty.
