  •  This issue isn't going to go away (5+ / 0-)

    The politicians and news media will eventually move on to whatever reality TV show is popular, or whatever movie star is currently in trouble with the law.

      But regular people will have no choice but to remember the ongoing spying every time they log into their computer. We will tell dark jokes to our friends about it. We will censor ourselves in subtle ways.
       But it will always be in the backs of our minds. And when a political figure finally makes a big deal out of it, or yet another revelation from another whistleblower displays yet another way the information is being abused, the issue will flare up again just as big.

    “Wall Street had been doing business with pieces of paper; and now someone asked for a dollar, and it was discovered that the dollar had been mislaid.” ― Upton Sinclair
