radical librarians

do exist – in quite organized fashion! Following this interview/declaration is an impressive list of links.
This December 11, 2005 NYTimes article refers to the Justice Department (distinct from the Dept of Homeland Security?):
“But the department has said that it had never used the provision to demand records from libraries or bookstores or to get information related to medical or gun records, areas that have prompted privacy concerns and protests from civil rights advocates, conservative libertarians and other critics of the law.”
Wired put a story a few days ago (Dec 16) that leads with info on radical librarian Jessamyn West (from Vermont!), who wrote the declaration linked above. Her blog includes a link to today’s Buffalo News story Bush intensifies rhetoric in battle over Patriot Act.
