This Just In...

A federal judge, in Detroit, today became the first to declare this administration's NSA surveillance program unconstitutional on the grounds that it violates First Amendment rights to free speech and privacy. According to the Associated Press, Judge Anna Diggs Taylor ordered an "immediate halt to the program."

A spokesperson for the American Civil Liberties Union all but assures this administration will appeal the ruling. And, when the court's decision reaches the Vice President's desk, one can bet that Mr. Cheney will add Judge Anna Diggs Taylor to the long, and growing list of "al Qaeda-types."
