Latest Commentary: Volume VII, Number 21
Warrantless Wiretapping Law Lapses -- Temporary revisions to the 1978 Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act lapsed over the week-end. It is now illegal once again for the American government to wiretap its own citizens without a warrant. The Fourth Amendment, comatose just a few days ago, is now recovering. The heroes of the day are the Democrats in the House of Representatives who simply let this bad law die.

Kosovo Declares Independence from Serbia -- Yesterday, an old nation declared itself the newest state in the world. Kosovo declared its independence from Serbia. Although the Serbs and their Russian allies are not happy about it, to say the least, no one moved any troops against anyone else. At least, not so far, and with cool heads in the right places, no one will.

UK to Nationalize Failing Northern Rock -- The US is usually ahead of the British in various political, economic and business trends. One remembers when President Reagan introduced the Tory Party to the teleprompter. However, the government of Gordon Brown may be pointing out a solution to Americaís banking problems with the proposed nationalization of troubled Northern Rock mortgage bank.

Three Cups of Tea Inspires -- There are a great many books that one misses when they first hit the market, and Three Cups of Tea is one such for this journal. A New York Times bestseller and one of Target.comís Bookmarked Book Club selections, the book is the true story of Greg Mortenson, director of the Central Asia Institute and former mountaineer. It reads like a great adventure novel, and it is all the more astonishing because it is non-fiction.
