This is even more disturbing when one considers that, when these songs were written, IBM was selling tabulating machines to the Nazis for the Holocaust.

Thomas Wilson?? Hardly ... try Thomas Watson.

"There's a feeling everywhere of greater things in store..."

My Dad showed me one of the .mid files to match this hymnbook back in the 90's.

COMPTROLLER? Is it like a professional computer troll?

Perhaps in alternate 2014, IBM is now a subsidiary of BiffCo.

This calls for a bit of Stan Rogers's "White Collar Holler" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rsDkmVo2fg4 (from a Xerox programmer's perspective rather than IBM, but still.)

It could be worse. It could be an economist.

Who said anything about worse? Terror can be terrific.
