I've led a relatively uneventful life.


I don't spend a whole lot of time on E2 anymore. I sometimes think I might add a couple more factual writeups, but I never seem to get around to it.


Of course, there is no doubt that if we lived in a police state, it would be easier to catch terrorists. If we lived in a country that allowed the police to search your home at any time for any reason; if we lived in a country that allowed the government to open your mail, eavesdrop on your phone conversations, or intercept your email communications; if we lived in a country which allowed the government to hold people in jail indefinitely based on what they write or think, or based on mere suspicion that they are up to no good, then the government would no doubt discover an arrest more terrorists. But that probably would not be a country in which we would want to live. And that would not be a country for which we could, in good conscience, ask our young people to fight and die. In short, that would not be America. Preserving our freedom is one of the main reasons that we are now engaged in this new war on terrorism. We will lose that war without firing a shot if we sacrifice the liberties of the American people.

--Senator Russell Feingold, the only member of the U.S. Senate who had the courage and conviction to vote against the misleadingly named USA Patriot Act


I really hate typos, especially my own, but I won't downvote someone for a spelling error. I try to /msg people to let them know about typos and other errors in their write-ups, but there are just so many of them. Please don't be offended by this, I'm just trying to help. If I could fix 'em myself I would.
