It's the little details that reveal all. From the caption of the photo that goes along with this story:
Police check all vehicles heading toward the U.S. Capitol at a roadblock on Independence Avenue.
Irony abounds... and yet, I can't laugh.
The question remains, "What next?" I used to be able to say, "O.K., rationality will prevail." But I can't say that it will for certian. The article linked talks about how Al Qaeda used the net to communicate. Will the net now be monitored because it could be used by people we don't like? And then, what about the phone system? What about the mail system? What about talking with one another?
Yep -- roadblock on Independence Avenue, indeed.
