US Department of State Misunderstands "Free Lunch"

Apparently US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Undersecretary Patrick Kennedy misunderstand the concept of a free lunch. Seems the good people who work in the State Department would like the option of using Firefox as their browser.

Now Firefox is a free, open-source web browser. Yet at a recent State Department "town hall meeting," Clinton and Kennedy defended the exclusive use of Internet Explorer, citing "expense questions" associated with Firefox. Watch Kennedy get shouted down and dance around the issue--and apologies for the attitude of the accompanying piece at the Gizmodo site.

And if you are prepared to risk "expense questions" of your own, download Firefox:
