1. The NSA versus Finnegans Wake. Channels Orwell, too. (Via John Merritt).
2. I like this Sen. Biden guy debating Obama over the NSA. He sounds like a libertarian.
3. At work today, I was working on a story about a libertarian advocacy group's efforts to slow down a bill here in Ohio that make it easier for police to obtain cell phone records. I read in this press release that the bill passed 32-1 in the Senate. Naturally, I wondered who the weirdo was, so I tracked down the vote. The lone "No" vote was Sen. Michael Skindell, a Democrat from the Cleveland area. Senate District 23.
