This is a nice piece about the USA Patriot Act. Erik Wennermark not only covers all the reasons why librarians hate Section 215, he talks about why it may not matter. Everyone’s reading the DaVinci Code anyway right?
This issue though, can obviously make for strange bedfellows, and if I wind up defending Timmy McVeigh’s right to check out gardening manuals unmolested, there is that risk living, as we do, in a free society.
