F.B.I., Using Patriot Act, Demands Library's Records [NY Times Link]

Part of the Article Behind LJ-Cut )

It's sort of creepy. And before people start, yes, I do understand there's the whole terrorist threat in that corner of the world issue that should go on the scale. Still, it's sad to see that the country that inspired so many of those who grew up under dictatorships and without civil liberties is now... Oh, well. I should just drive by, like some people like to remind me: Not my country really (I have to put up with a lengthy and dull process to get a visa) and I basically go there to go to the Met, shop, see friends and take in the sights.

It's just, well, sad.

This (they have a few along the same lines) comes from the Librarian.net.
