What Do Librarians and Crystal Meth Users Have in Common?
The Patriot Act, of course.
In the Hanover Eagle, voices of reason, public librarians, speak about requiring a subpoena before releasing patron information. Sensible but out of step with the times.
Meanwhile, one opportunistic law enforcer, the Saline County (Arkansas) Sheriff Phil Mask, favors making the Patriot Act permanent because it's a useful tool to bust meth. If not, Sheriff Mask is quoted as saying "I think its gonna hinder us from doing the things we need to do…not only from terrorism, but for fighting this war on methamphetamine." Overreaching but in step with the times.
