from the mailbag, don’t mess with librarians

From my friend the law professor. “Last night I went to a discussion among a famous local Rabbi (who is also a professor), Jamie Gorelick (member 9/11 Commission and former Assist. Attny Gen. for Clinton), and Viet Dinh (G-town law prof, former AA General for Bush, author of the USA Patriot Act, and poster boy for conservative causes…). Viet made a comment at one point that I think you would like — he said what he had learned from the response to the Patriot Act was ‘Don’t mess with librarians.'”
