According to CNN, budget constraints are forcing some FBI agents to operate without e-mail accounts.

Wonkette had the best response:
Dear FBI:

We saw the CNN piece today about how many of your employees don’t have email. As “bloggers,” we know a thing or two about this Internet fad, and we think we might be able to help you out. Here’s some things you may not know:

  • Email is free.

  • . . .

  • No, seriously, email is actually free. You don’t need to pay for it. We sent DoD a gmail invite, we have like 90 more for you guys.

  • Hey, we know people who are like temps at Justice, and they get .gov email addresses. Did you piss off the Federal IT department or something?

  • We cannot stress this enough: You don’t need to pay for an email address.

  • Specifically this line here: “The outside e-mail accounts have to be separately funded” — that just makes no fucking sense to us.

Anyway, hope that helps. We will, of course, be printing this note and sending it via bike messenger or something.
