THE Patriot Act - brilliant! Its critics would have preferred a less
stirring title, perhaps something along the lines of the Enhanced
Snooping, Library and Hospital Database Seizure Act. But then who,
even right after 9/11, would have voted for that?

Precisely. He who names it and frames it, claims it. The Patriot Act,
however, may turn out to be among the lesser threats to our individual
and collective privacy.

There is no end to what we will endure, support, pay for and promote
if only it makes our lives easier, promises to save us money, appears
to enhance our security and comes to us in a warm, cuddly and
altogether nonthreatening package.
