A gracious good Wednesday to all!

The ACLU has established a contra-TIPS site that I urge everyone to check out. I run 50/50 between criticism and praise for the ACLU but -- on the issue of the Bush Administration's Operation TIPS (Terrorist Information and Prevention System) which officially encourages ordinary citizens to spy upon and anonymously report other ordinary citizens to the authorities a la STASI -- I fall firmly on praise side. Check out their NO TIPS Action Kit to download free items that defend your privacy rights, including a "NO TIPS" form to send to your utility companies and a door hanger to put on your doorknob reading "this house's privacy is protected by the ACLU."

And while you are on their site, send a free fax to your Senators.

Stay safe, stay private,
