oh, crap.

ALA has issued a press release revealing that, "Just-released Federal Bureau of Investigation documents indicate that the FBI sought to use Section 215 of the USA PATRIOT Act less than one month after Attorney General John Ashcroft told American Library Association (ALA) President Carla Hayden and the American public that this power had never been used."

One of scariest things, for me, is that this doesn't surprise me one blinkin' bit.

The USA PATRIOT Act scares me, but for cryin' out loud! If Ashcroft and his pals think it is so important, at least tell the truth about whether or not you're using it!

(Now, which one of you would like to sit Mr. Ashcroft down and explain what the word "truth" means?)
