Another FedEx package opened by the tireless folks at Homeland Security. Maybe I'm a starry-eyed idealist, but for once I'd like to be the first person to look at my own mail.

And who watches the watchers of the watchers? Us, maybe.

Mac, we all have long suspected you of some insidious, nefarious alien conspiracy--just thinking and speaking out as you do, we must assume you are a major national security risk in league with demonic forces! Bwahaha!

Welcome to the future...

They're just following orders of course. Er...where have we heard that before?

Ha. Yeah, I'm a real trouble-maker. What was that Burroughs said about a nation where no one is allowed to mind his own business?

This makes me somehow grateful that my packages AREN'T being opened...at least not yet. I probably have as much reason to fear HS as you, Mac, since I routinely post rather virulent anti-Bush/Cheney administration rants on a number of Web sites. (Of course, so do many of the other posters -- maybe there's safety in numbers....)

Maybe it's because you have close ties to a well-known "rogue state" -- Canada!

I more or less dumped "venting" my laments about the W administration a long time ago, so I don't see why I warrant the "special treatment."

Hey, maybe it's my UFO essays! Boy, *that* would be flattering! :-)

Wait until your local firefighter becames a special agent for Homeland Security.

Of course, with citizens busy spying on each other and their government spying on them in turn, the bad guys just sit back and laugh as we destroy ourselves. ("The Monsters Are Due On Maple Street.")

True ray.

In this case paranoia can be a good thing.

"The Monsters Are Due On Maple Street" --Twilight Zone episode

I saw this again fairly recently on the SciFi channel late one night. One of the best episodes ever. Hope it's not prophetic...

Mac--consider an FOIA/PA to DHS.
