I just wrote the White House.

To whom it may concern,

I am an independent who has voted for Mr. Bush twice. I am writing to register my disbelief and disappointment with Mr. Rumsfeld's gagging the Pentagon employees who know of the Able Danger program from testifying before the Senate Judiciary Committee. I understand that some may feel that there is a national security issue with these individual's testimony; however, at this point, I feel that the very credibility of the entire federal government is at stake. Please let the truth come out; please insist that these individuals be allowed to testify.

Sincerely,

Bjamexza Q. Pyndejo


I'm stunned at the subterfuge here.

What is Able Danger? It was a datamining project that allegedly found al Queda activities in the US and abroad years before 9/11. It was shut down, ostensibly over domestic privacy issues.

When's the last time the government felt we had a right to privacy, eh? Well, now they're standing on principle.

Sure! I was thinking earlier today while reading this, "how does he have the time?!?!?!"

Do you use Firefox? One of the really cool things about it is that you can have it open a whole directory of links into tabs with one click. One click and I have my whole coffee-break reading set to go, no surfing.

In response, I just wrote hell.

To the dire and foul ruler, the dread overseer of souls, the nasty biotch, Lord Satan,

I am writing to register my complaint with the heating system down here. WHen are you going to get it fixed? I'm freezing my newtons off right now.

Sincerely,

Redriguez P. Herring


I don't know what's more stunning - that you wrote the White House to complain about Rumsfeld, or that I agree with you completely.
