Response to malaise (Reply #17)

22. Yes.

That was a pathetic chapter, and the media deserves a bit of the blame for not focusing more on the Cheney-Bush administration's vile policy.

This type of thing continues to expand in other areas. I was at a site in PA a while back, where a large gas industry plant was being constructed. It "violates" federal law for a citizen to photograph the environmental devastation there, in building the plant. The reason they give is, of course, "national security." A terriblist might use a photo to plan an attack. Bullshit. Anyone can pull off the dirt road, and look at it all day long. The only reason for that restriction is a private industry doesn't want the public to see what it is actually doing -- it ain't so nice as the commercials on television pretend it is.

My youngest has one year of high school left. After that, I'll be out there with my camera, as a citizen-journalist. A "vacation" in a federal pen could result, of course. But I'll save the government money -- I won't eat. (grin)
