My Take on the NSA
I agree with it. 9/11 did not invalidate the 4th Ammendment. The FISA court exists for these circumstances; it grants 99% of all warrants asked for. Why is that not good enough for Bush?

Well, I'm off. Orientation Week is exausting. I think things might be easier once classes start-those end earlier!

Moving in to Law School
Well, my Grandma went to the hospital.
She tripped while getting out of the elevator. She has brittle bone disease, so, while for anyone else that fall would be nothing, for her, it resulted in a trip to White Plains Hospital-and she lives in central Jersey.
Luckily, she should be transferred to a hospital there later tonight (possibly even right now).
Except for that, the move in went well.

Preparing to go to law school,
My last summer vacation-
I remember when I was younger-
Adulthood was far off in the distance
I would drive around on my little toy fire truck
Or I would play Nintendo,
Then later Super Nintendo
Until my favorite TV shows came on
Singing along to Kids Incorporated
Journeying into the Hundred
I remember Today’s Special
And the Little Koala
And David the Gnome
And I can’t leave out Real Ghostbusters!
Even when school seriously started,
In the afternoon,
I would still go into childhood’s dreamland
And watch Disney Afternoon-
And the weekends had
Ren and Stimpy
I remember spending all day on Final Fantasy 3 (I didn’t know it was 6 then)
Skipping lunch to beat Kefka.
I had no worries
About living on my own, or jobs, or anything else
I had no future
But summer vacation
But now those days are over.
High School and college stired me from my childhood dreams
And now they will end for good.
Oh, to go back to that magical time for just one day!
When ghosts were real and the Ghostbusters always vanquished them
And Inspector Gadget always caught the bad guys
And Santa Claus and the Easter Bunny and the Tooth Fairy were real
And, however fleetingly, magic was possible…

So, thanks to the discovery of a new terrorist plot, no liquids except for formula and baby’s milk and no electronics on planes. Some thoughts:
-Somebody should invent some sort of test strip to dip in liquid that would indicate whether or not it’s an explosive, so people can take their own drinks onto planes again and not have to do gross things like drink breast milk.
-We now have to trust our MP3 players and laptops and camcorders to baggage handlers. Maybe airlines hire different kinds of people, but, when I went on my cruise to
-The article makes a good point-people use MP3 players to drown out screaming babies. Maybe the airlines could offer kid free flights? Some have “kids fly free”, right? Why not “adults fly free from kids”? I’d pay extra for that (even if I could still take my MP3 player, I’d still pay extra for a flight with nobody under, say, ten on board).
I know these security measures are necessary, but they should still find a way to mitigate the inconvenience.
