More and more and more…

Thanks to White Vampire for passing me this link. It's got details on the revamped anti-terrorist act, now renamed the Provide Appropriate Tools Required to Intercept and Obstruct Terrorism Act (aka the PATRIOT act — I guess the name means that if you vote against it you're voting against patriotism). If you'd like a quick overview, scroll down and read the sidebar in the link below.

Here's the link:

I know I'm risking getting more death threats and hatemail for posting this information and not being in support of the “PATRIOT act”, but PLEASE read these things — whether you're proud of the governement's actions or unhappy with them, a true patriot is someone who is informed and active. If you disagree with this bill (or support it I suppose), contact your congressperson and let them know! Bush is trying to push this through by week's end, so don't sit idle.

If you are unsure on the correct procedure on contacting congress, the EFF maintains an excellent page on it here.


On an unrelated note, watch for an image update later today on BME.

Wow Shannon, that's really annoying! What is it, 1997 on Geocities? Retroweb is NOT cool!
