Letter: They’re watching them (and you)

Dear Editor:

Are we sleeping better at night now that we know potential terrorists are being monitored?

But wait, before you answer, are you OK with knowing a database also is being built on you? If you are concerned, don’t do anything on your phone, computer or whatever. If you have anything to hide, you had best keep it to yourself.

As for me, I think, with its flaws, database building is better than having none at all. Maybe the dots can be connected when some Middle East chap wants to learn to fly a commercial jet but not learn how to land it.

Go get them, NSA.
