    only God and Santa Claus had the NSA's current surveillance capabilities.

    So if you think that roadside scanning thing can't or won't happen, you are clearly not paranoid enough.  And believe me, it is not possible to be too paranoid in this day and age.

      there was no internet; there were no personal computers; microwave ovens were still new, expensive, and rare; telephones were big, black, and plugged into the wall; color TVs were not universal (my family didn't have one until the late 70's); all automobiles burned large amounts of leaded gasoline; smallpox was not yet eradicated; and people worried about a coming ice age.

      Knowledge is dangerous, no question. So is ignorance.

      My country, right or wrong; if right, to be kept right; and if wrong, to be set right.
