Thanks to Hugh B. for this link to a story that I fear is becoming more common. The United States has become a police state.
"Five government anti-terrorism agents arrived at the door of Nancy Swift's modest home in a northern Virginia suburb last August, where Swift lives and rents out some rooms. They threatened her with a subpoena. They dispatched agents to her office to ask about her. They took away her garbage in the trunks of their cars, and they questioned one of her housemates. It all happened, apparently, because a neighbor called authorities about one of Swift's tenants in the house, a young Middle Eastern man who had other Middle Eastern friends visit one holiday weekend. The neighbor also turns Swift in to the county government when her grass gets too long."
