we are becoming our worst enemy

I regularly read SlashDot, which is a geek news site that gives paragraph intros to a linked full story and then people can comment on it. One section of their site, called Your Rights Online recently published this article reporting about a Dartmouth student being visited by the SS after requesting a book that contains information contrary to the state.

Seems to follow along with this little reported news item regarding Bush and his (lack of) concern for people's Constitutional rights.

Finally, while Bush has reversed himself and has now said that he's against torture (more specifically, against any forms of interrogation that are not in the Army Handbook), we learn now about a new, classified addendum to the Army Handbook.

While we enjoy this holiday season, let's remember that we have a lot of work to do!
