Cite even one.  There are many articles out there that say it can be 
cracked.  No doubt about it, but it is a couple of orders of magnitude 
tougher than WEP (which should take a beginner about 15 minutes).  If you 
change your keys _frequently_ (more frequently than practically anybody 
would, manually) WPA should be quite secure.  That's why you can make a 
secure network based on WPA.
