Winning those hearts and minds:

"Tens of thousands of Indians waving black and white flags and chanting 'Death to Bush!' rallied Wednesday in New Delhi to protest a visit by President Bush."

Study: Few Americans Know 1st Amendment:
Americans apparently know more about 'The Simpsons' than they do about the First Amendment.

Speaking of your rights being taken away:
Sen. Byrd Regrets Voting for Patriot Act
"'The original Patriot Act is a case study in the perils of speed, herd instinct and lack of vigilance when it comes to legislating in times of crisis,' the West Virginia Democrat said Monday on the eve of the Senate's final votes on its renewal. 'The Congress was stampeded, and the values of freedom, justice and equality received a trampling in the headlong rush.'"
Know your computer urban myths.
Computer Fact or Fiction?
