Patriot Act Compromise:
The Associated Press is reporting a revised compromise on the expiring provisions of the Patriot Act. It's hard to tell from the story how this compromise differs from the last one that didn't hold, except that the sunset provision for roving wiretaps and Section 215 orders will be 4 years instead of 7 years (which sounds like small potatoes to me).
thanks for this information. i had not seen it anywhere else before here.

Defending the Indefensible:
The USA PATRIOT act should just be let lapse. It has not made us more secure from terrorists, it has made us less secure from the government.
