ALA Opposes Repealing Sunset Clause of Patriot Act


News from Library Journal today that "The American Library Association has issued a statement strongly opposing S.2476, introduced in the United States Senate by Sen. Jon Kyl (R-AR). The bill seeks to make permanent those portions of the USA PATRIOT Act set to expire at the end of 2005." President Bush announced his desire to extend those provisions in January's State of the Union address.


I swear this isn't flambait I just got a kick out of the 'breaking news' category for the article on LJ's website.

Call me when Ashcroft and Carla Hayden have a press conference together where they sing Peter, Paul, & Mary's "If I Had A Hammer".

Though Johnny's light baritone voice may cause all of us to swoon, I'll endure the press conference only if he provides piano accompaniment. His keyboard style is unique blend of country gospel and cocktail cliche. It must be heard to be appreciated.
