Just when we think Drudge had run out of ways to alarm us with his schizoid hysteria, we discover this:

Again, our disappointingly tasteful web designer's specs prevent us from properly communicating the urgency of this news bulletin, or else the headline would march IN 36 POINT TYPE ACROSS THE ENTIRE PAGE. Then again, perhaps the story doesn't deserve more than your standard sober font: It's not like this technology will magically transform people into killing machines. Says the inventor:
- "The exoskeleton is not going to magically transform people into killing machines."
Whew. But why do we suspect that someone in the Pentagon is going to get a late-night phone call from the White House about this? ("You said, 'killing machines.' I distinctly remember you promising 'killing machines'. . . ")
