USA Patriot Act - Catcha twenty-two

Or how I too learned to love Big Brother.

This is another frightening story brought to you by Attorney General Ashcroft (and channeled to you by the good people at the WaPo) about one of the interesting provisions of the USA Patriot Act (AKA the "We're going to put a listening device up your colon and there is nothing you can do about it" Act).

Senor Eggen at the Post has disclosed that "The American Civil Liberties Union disclosed yesterday that it filed a lawsuit three weeks ago challenging the FBI's methods of obtaining many business records, but the group was barred from revealing even the existence of the case until now."
Anyway, what do you think? Bubba is dying to know.
