Unless one of my colleagues beats me to it, I’m thinking of crafting a reply to Rich Lowry’s recent column on PATRIOT Act “hysteria” if I have time. One of the problems here is that Lowry challenges us to identify civil liberties infringed under the act, when one of the act’s features is what it allows to be done secretly. Nevertheless… if anyone out there can recall a news story about some particular abuse that wouldn’t have been possible before PATRIOT, I’d be grateful if you’d drop a line.
