Freedom Fighter - Pondering the Patriot Act

An Anonymous Patron points us in the direction of Carolyn Anthony , a freedom fighter in the name of civil liberty.

The article, by Ru Freeman starts off with "You go into the local library, drop off the kids at story hour and browse the Internet while you wait. You follow a couple of leads, track a few sources, read some international takes on American foreign policy. Later that day the FBI pays a visit to your local librarian to check what you read. You are now part of a secret investigation pertaining to "the enforcement of federal laws," none of which you have violated. Unlikely? Carolyn Additon Anthony '71 doesn't think so."

Is this an assault on civil liberties? Read the full story and have your say.
