A recap of my five questions at the end of class today ...

- timeline of authorization and delivery of 9/11 commission report (three years) vs. timeline of assembly and passage of patriot act (three weeks)?

- metaphor of post-9/11 situation as one of "crime" vs. "war"?

- is the physical library a more surveilled space than digital library?

- why the term "patriot"? what work does that term do?

- are we concerned about "our" own (majority, mainstream, educated, middle-class, or White) rights, or the rights of the minority, the powerless, the unpopular, and the poor?
