new Windows Live package is the Family Safety 
Filter, so I decided to give it a spin. Turned it 
on, set it to 'basic filtering' (their lowest 
level), and went to Google ... oops, it blocks 
Google! So I logged into the settings and added 
Google as an exception. Google still wouldn't 
come up. Just in case, I turned off the family 
filter: voila, Google. As we all know, 'Don't be 
evil' is not part of Microsoft's motto! Oh yeah ­ 
and with the filter on, Microsoft's own search 
engine, live.com comes up." Anomaly?

Our truest response to the irrationality of the 
world is to paint or sing or write, for only in such response do we find truth.
