I don’t think the accusation of anti-Catholicism against Ashcroft is fair

But I am troubled at the Big Brotherish overtures the State is making in the War on Terror. A friend used to say that we were three meals away from a revolution. I think we are one or two terrorist acts away from completely abandoning our rights to whoever says they will protect us from getting blown up. And I frankly find the TIPS program (“every citizen a rat!”) sinister.
