"You ask what I am?"
"Why, a machine. But even in that answer we know, don't we, more than a machine. I am all the people who thought of me and planned me and built me and set me running. So I am people.

"Wone's Aug. 2, 2006, slaying will probably go unsolved. Prosecutors believe that one or more people restrained Wone, sexually assaulted him and stabbed him to death after he went to sleep on a pullout couch in a second-floor guest room at 1509 Swann St. NW.
But no one has been charged with killing him.
As early as next week, though, more details of what happened inside the elegant Dupont Circle townhouse where Wone was killed are likely to emerge in court. A trial is set to begin for the three men who lived in the house, where Wone, 32, was staying after a long day's work." (WaPo)
