Smith today informed close friends and associates that he plans to spend this Halloween “hiding out in his basement with a flashlight, some canned meats, bottled water, and a loaded and ready shotgun”.  A visibly shaking Smith continued: “I’ve heard about the whole computer virus doomsday thing, and if any of them little looters so much as approaches my front door looking for goodies, they’ll be in for one hell of a surprise.”
