This link should take you to the full text of the column that I quoted from yesterday. The Miami Herald seems to be a rare bird. They allow access to text without having to sign up and get a pass word and all that personal stuff. :-)
I added this because there is a lot more info in the column than my excerpt. Freedom is a messy business, and most folks like things neat. It's too easy to forget that the most important freedom of all is the freedom to say NO! Something that has been trivialized by the "just say no to drugs campaign."
And to those who say "well, if you don't have anything to hide, why should it matter if where you go, or what you read, or who stays at your house is checked out?" READ MY LIPS, IT'S NONE OF YOUR DAMN BUSINESS. END OF STORY. IT'S ALSO NONE OF MY BUSINESS WHAT YOU READ, WHERE YOU GO OR WHO STAYS AT YOUR HOUSE.
