it might be obvious to anyone who's familiar with the system, but i think
it's sending the wrong message to anyone who's new to pgp/gpg.

who ever said anything is wrong with being an anarchist politician? of
course, one's constituency might not be comfortable with that... and a gay
member of a church... i don't see a problem with that, but many people do.

so a paragraph or two should be re-written.... i can make a submission for
that... any suggestions for a politically correct cast of characters to
portray such a situation?
