fear ye, fear ye!

The New Yorker will have an article in its next issue written by Lawrence Wright which profiles Michael McConnell and his belief that the government must be allowed unexamined access to everything online. All of it. All of those hundreds of offers to increase the size of anatomical parts I don’t have, all the offers for watches which I don’t need, and all the web searches I perform when I really should be working. All of it. Because the only way to keep this nation safe is to ditch the constitution and let the executive branch work without all that balance of powers nonsense. The fourth amendment is just too damned risky in this day and age! Read a preview at Threat Level. And listen to Wright talk about it.
