Website/Article of the Day

New site to read: Warblogging

I have the anger too. I wish I knew what to do about it.

I’m angry that I know, personally, people who have been touched by the massive domestic “security” apparatus constructed after September 11. They say that in South America everyone knows someone who’s been “disappeared”. I feel like things are getting that way here, too, except that not quite that many people are being “disappeared” yet they’re just being harassed. I’m absolutely livid at the thought that a student at the State University of New York was interrogated by the Secret Service after he wrote an editorial in a school newspaper asking Jesus to smite President Bush. I’m furious, completely furious that that friend of mine was asked if he had a copy of Mein Kampf and the Unabomber’s Manifesto as the Secret Service turned his apartment upside down. Do you realize that the Secret Service told him that his editorial was not “protected speech”?

Articulated far better than I could put it. Read it.
