The internet seems like a wider (and cheaper) distribution method than
the NYT.  So what are you waiting for?  I hereby volunteer to cover your
costs for posting your secret key to this mailing list :P


PS If Robert follows through on this, he certainly wouldn't be the only
person to publish his secret key.  Search for "BEGIN PGP PRIVATE KEY
BLOCK" in your favorite search engine.
