|

I didn't see it at the time, but last month the Sacramento Bee published an interesting multi-part series on the post-Sept. 11 security vs. civil liberties question. Nat Hentoff says it "deserves a Pulitzer."

  1. “do i dare to eat a peach?”

    does the eternal coatman snicker at the sac bee, too?

    prufrockingly,
    drf

  2. And people still think it’s a democracy.

  3. The government, in some cases, can jail someone for providing aid to groups it links to terrorism.

    Makes me feel guilty all over for paying my taxes.

  4. Good one rst!

    🙂

    Tin-foil hat on: Then, if what you say is true, then we are all subject to arbitrary arrest?!!??!

  5. And people still think it’s a democracy.

    Smart people have known all along that it is a republic, not a democracy.

    The government, in some cases, can jail someone for providing aid to groups it links to terrorism.

    Omigod!! Punishing people for aiding and abetting a crime! Where will it all end?

  6. The Sac Bee better bee careful, cuz Big Bad John is going to shut them down. I mean with all of the newspapers, radio stations, web sites,tv stations, magazines, and blogs there is NO free speech in this country. If you say anything wrong you’re going to jail. End of story. No trial, no jury, just the Gulag.
