Well, I did initially.  By default it preserves permissions on my
system.  I guess it shouldn't really matter in the above case since
Robert was going to have to chmod a-w anyhow.  I just stopped thinking
about that somewhere along the line as I was playing around and saw the
execute bits go away.

Besides, who else uses cat.  It makes me look unique.  ;)

We shall have our follies without doubt.  Some one or more of them will always
be afloat.  But ours will be the follies of enthusiasm, not of bigotry, not of
Jesuitism.  Bigotry is the disease of ignorance, of morbid minds; enthusiasm of
the free and buoyant.  Education and free discussion are the antidotes of both.
We are destined to be a barrier against the return of ignorance and barbarism.
