Did anyone else catch the Today Show this morning? Katie interviewed the head of the ACLU and Reagan's Attorney General, Ed Meese. The topic was the Patriot Act, it's potential threats to our privacy, etc. Ms. ACLU was factual, articulate, totally civil. She mentioned the fact that even the American Library Association is protesting the fact that they could require libraries to turn over patrons' reading lists (and are specifically barred from telling patrons that they've been asked to do so). Meese's response? THAT THE ALA WAS MORE INTERESTED IN MAKING SURE CHILDREN COULD GET PORN. Way classy, Ed. 'Cause we all know just what perverts librarians are. He also kept saying that the Patriot Act powers HAVEN'T been abused. What he couldn't say---and no one else can say---is that they WON'T be. I don't trust ANY administration that would hire Karl Rove. His dirty tricks are what effectively killed McCain's candidacy in 2000, and none of us should forgive him for that. McCain may have been more conservative than I'd have liked, but I've never doubted his integrity or his ability to work with others who don't share his ideologies.
