11/15/02, 12:15 am – But It’s Looking Like 1984

Copy of a message I just sent to my Senators and Congressman:

Dear ___________,

I understand from a New York Times editorial today (“You Are Suspect” by William Safire, 11/14) that the Homeland Security Act includes provisions for the government to begin collecting an extensive amount and wide variety of data on American citizens. I strongly object to legalizing such an Orwellian concept and encourage you to make sure the bill gets amended before passage.

Thanks for your attention to this critical issue.

    Nice one. I sent Senator Clinton a considerably meaner email yesterday about the Bush’s Iraq War Resolution. She sent me a press release, explaining, basically, how and why she’s decided to become a Republican. Sigh.

    Follow up Letters to the Editor from Safire’s editorial are here.

    Now the NY Times editorial board encourages congressional action, too.
