Letter to the Editor
Saturday, July 20, 2013, 9:00 p.m.
 

A tree falls in the forest. No one's present to hear the crash. Does it still make a sound?

National Security Agency searches violate the Fourth Amendment. NSA management lies to Congress, denying those violations. Did the violations still occur? Did NSA management still commit a crime?

An NSA contractor reveals the violations to a newspaper. NSA management lies to Congress, denying those violations. Attention focuses on whether the contractor is a hero or a traitor and where he might be granted asylum. Did the violations still occur? Did NSA management still commit a crime?

Don't let distractions from a rogue government divert you from the really important questions, or else the next crash you hear could sound the end of individual rights in America.
