Is Bruce Schneier the brains behind Holy Moly?

When Bruce Schneier anticipates a Holy Moly article, you know something weird is going on...

Exhibit 1: Bruce's article about using a laptop to hack into a car's security system to steal it

Exhibit 2: Today's "Holy Moly" mailout (signup required, rarely safe for work... don't say you weren't warned) describes a famous celebrity's problem of hackers stealing her car.

The only explanation is that Bruce's sleuthing skills, and knowledge of how to circumvent strict security, both make him perfectly placed to be Mr. Holy Moly. Who'd have thought it?
