Patriot Act is the real emergency

Dear Editor:If you are as confused by the debate over the NSA’s search of our phone records under the national emergency known as the Patriot Act, may I recommend a new website that has, for me, taken my understanding to a new level. The website is, and it is reasonable and very good. The creator of the web site has published a book as well, called “How would a Patriot Act? Defending American Values from a President run Amok,” available at Amazon and Barnes & Noble. For this non-lawyer, it brings down to earth what I have feared about our government spying on its citizens. Both the website and the book are a good read.Andy HansonAspen Highlands
