I Can’t Tell You About It

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.

Jane, read the DaVinci Code (don’t tell anyone)

    I want a poptart now. I do have to agree, in general, about people’s taste in leisure reading, mine included. Right now though I’m reading a classic work of fiction and a non-fiction book about modern circuses, so there mr. librarytechnicianhead.

    He does have an interesting take on the Patriot Act and the readers the government is likely to be targetting. Humor aside, it is an issue that we should be concerned about. In the meantime, I think I better reach for that shredder.
