War and liberty
Here's a link to the piece my colleague Steve Greenhut did as we approach the anniversary of 9/11, in Sunday's Register Commentary section. He emphasizes the freedom we have lost, the ways the government has used the fear arising from 9/11 to expand its power, partricularly its power to keep watch on Americans. And as usual in time of war, most of the people have not protested, ready to trade liberty for safety, when it's not a trade-off at all. It will be interesting to see what kinds of phone calls and e-mails he gets in response.
