So it's good to see more and more people making moves against the Patriot Act. The only disappointing thing is that it's taken nearly two years to build up a head of steam against it, but it's better than nothing. This is yet another thing we need to get more pissed about, so that we can keep it from happening again. Like it or not, large-scale terrorist attacks are a real possibility for the future. If we do have another major attack, and it occurs on Bush's watch, I can only imagine what the Administration's response will be. What we need both before and after attacks like September 11th are effective means of at least attempting to solve the issues at hand, and not legislation that looks like a fascist-style consolidation of power.
