Daniel Jackson at The News Herald via a Firing Line thread - Man arrested for shooting fowls - my title. A Florida man shot three chickens and a turkey that belonged to him but had escaped into his neighbor's yard. He was arrested for animal cruelty, but later released (second story). Didn't say if anyone preserved the carcasses for his dinner table. [smith2004]

Justin Raimondo at - One Million Busybodies - a report on TIPS, the fedgov's new citizen arm of their Gestapo. He compares it to Cuba's CDRs (Committees for the Defense of the Revolution). Then he moves on the anthrax mystery and labels Pat Buchanan as a big-time dove. [grabbe]

A million spies reporting on their fellow Americans -- and that's just the beginning! The nation's busybodies are going to have a field day; every crackpot in the country is going to flock to this program, like flies to fecal matter, eager to get in on the fun. Why, just think of the opportunities it affords the nation's nutballs: everyone they ever hated (ex-girlfriends, ex-husbands, ex-friends, and just random victims) will feel their wrath, and their power. It's a blank check issued to America's obsessives, who are going to do their best to make life miserable for the rest of us.
