You thought you had Freedom of speech or press... think again

The UK authorities have raided and destroyed the Guardians remaining hard drives to halt future publications of the NSA leaks by Snowden. Well I guess it is no big deal that an internal audit of the NSA has revealed 2,776 incidents of "unauthorized" collection on US citizens over the previous 12 months or similar claims in the UK. It turns out the NSA can make your own rules, break them, and then cover them up.

The guardian editor, Alan Rusbridger who in a long editorial says a British official advised him, "You've had your fun. Now we want the stuff back." It is very disturbing that Alan claims to have explained to government official that they have no jurisdiction over the forced destruction of the Guardians property as it has subsidiary offices in New York, and that Glenn Greenwald was in Brazil, and that future reporting on the NSA did not even take place in London. All failed to stop the destruction of the data at their offices. What could be worse than this? Intimidation? Scare tactics? Think harder....

The full excerpt from Alan Rusbridger:

Movie Theater Mischief

On Tynan

I'd driven by dozens of times and never noticed it. Tucked away from the main parking lot, vines had begun to cover the corners of the building. Pieces of sheet metal were hanging from what once might have been a modern looking building.

A Wheel of Fortune aficionado may have been able to make sense of the remaining letters on the marquee. It probably said "Home Alone", "Kindergarten Cop", and "House Party" or some other movies from 1990.

That's when the movie theater was shut down. It was built on the edge of a hill, and half of it was now a few inches down that hill. The building had cracked apart and been condemned.
