Someone needs a history lesson

"President Washington, President Lincoln, President Wilson, President Roosevelt have all authorized electronic surveillance on a far broader scale."

-- Alberto Gonzales, 06 Feb 2006

Thank God for Russ Feingold

I can't say how proud I am of the fact that one of my senators is actually doing his job and performing oversight of the executive branch. And it's especially refreshing to see some Republicans growing a bit of a spine and doing the same, like Specter.

Although I still can't fathom why they refused to have Gonzales swear in. He's been sworn in when he previously testified. Reminds me of the sham hearings with the oil executives a month or so ago.

Update: Feingold posted his review over at TPMCafe.

jsnpp 0.3.1 released

Just made some bug fixes to my java SNPP API and cut a new release. Interested parties are directed to download version 0.3.1 which corrects my careless misuse of the String.concat() function, as well as handles some evil protocol ignorance by HylaFAX.
