They're funny that way

If it wasn't for double standards, they'd have no standards at all...:
When the Patriot Act was debated (and recently re-debated), its critics (and the New York Times was quite prominent) spoke how the government could use that Act to do things like check my library records, my video rentals (much like was done against Clarence Thomas), and various and sundry other things.

But I think I'm more frightened of what the New York Times might do to me, given the precedent they are setting with the Roberts case.
