Not Even Safe When You're Dead

In some disturbing news out of Utah, there's a report that the American Stazi FBI is trying to pry loose the private papers of muckraking columnist Jack Anderson, who died last December.

Props to his family for telling the FBI to piss up a rope. Jack Anderson would have gone to jail rather than give up his papers, and his widow and children are willing to do the same thing.

In this time of cowardly leaders, whipped-dog media and heavy-handed Gestapo tactics, it's heartwarming and uplifting to see people who are still willing to stand up for their rights and tell the government to fuck off.

This kind of courage is becoming a rare commodity in today's world. Let's nurture it all we can.
