Gov. Reagan was much like Nixon
San Francisco Chronicle | Submitted by: ian m.
The San Francisco Chronicle's comprehensive coverage of an incredible story 17 years of legal battles in the making. Using the Freedom of Information Act, the Chronicle has exposed ex-President Ronald Reagan's complicity and assistance in all sorts of shady, underhanded, and fascist dealings, including blacklisting, covert intelligence gathering on "subversive" students, and purposeful career wrecking of liberal thinkers using deliberate lies. All done with the help of our good friends J. Edgar Hoover and the FBI. Thanks, Ronnie.

Suicide by train leaves lasting impression
Sacramento Bee | Submitted by: anonymous
"Other people stand defiantly between the rails, look the engineer in the eye, and let the overwhelming physics of an approaching locomotive take care of the rest. Edson said a fellow engineer had an incident in which a woman dressed in her finest clothes, bought a bottle of champagne and raised a glass just as the train hit her. Last month, a Bay Area man tipped his hat to a UP engineer before he was struck."

Australia wants big time Big Brother
EFF Australia | Submitted by: Soylent
"Proposed changes to the [Australia] Telecommunications Interception Act would give government agencies (not only police forces) powers to intercept and read email, voice mail and SMS messages, without an interception warrant as is presently required... The Government has phrased their proposed changes in a way that appears intended to confuse debate around this issue. They assert the changes merely "clarify" existing law. In fact, the "clarification" will result in wide-ranging expansion of surveillance powers."
