    A bit skeptical about many of these kind of stories it sounded like BS to me in the first place. With a very few exceptions you can request info on just about anything from the Library here in Louisville with no problems whatsoever.

    Wait, wait.....this is too good to be true. Sounds like a Michael Moore disciple to me, and half of THR bought it hook, line, and sinker. Only one thing is worse than "blind love" for George W, and that blind hatred, which colors all rational thought.

    The thing blew up bigger than he thought it would (an accusation like that he seriously underestimated the reaction), got caught spinning a bigger and bigger web and imploded.

    Can't say it hasn't happened to me a few times.

    One more argument for bringing back the draft.

    Well, yeah, but at least the Hero of Chappaquiddick was able to use the fake event to berate the Bush administration, so all's not lost.

    Those of us deep in the IT field are well aware of the blanket warrantless searches that the gummint currently does on email and web surfing habits of people. Those in the telecomm industry have been aware of similar gummint scrutiny of telephone calls. The NYT story about Bush's secret order to the NSA just confirmed some of the administrative details of a program in which many of the high level technical points were already pretty well understood.

    The idea that this student lied doesn't prove that the inter-library loan system is safe. What he did was pretty stupid, and he probably deserves to be expelled from school for this. But for those already familiar with the Carnivore project, this kids story didn't sound particularly incredulous. It just sounded like more of the same sort of domestic spying we're already aware of on other fronts.

    Sadly, this just means that the press will be very gunshy about running any true stories that sound like this one. It will slip under the radar, like the Mexican border crisis has been under the radar for years (and even now, isn't really covered in a way that would inform Americans about what kind of war is actually going on down there)

    I remember posting to the original article that this couldn't be factual, not in a nation where our leadership believes in freedom and liberty.

    The stress card is an urban myth, they never existed.

    and no the draft is a BAD idea, I really wouldn't want to be flying in a chopper that was inspected by someone who didn't join of their own free will.
