It's too bad legislation has picked up *this* particular technique from 
the memetic disease of religion. :-(

  Patriot Act designed to protect Patriot Act by preventing challenges 
to it to be made public
Great headline from the Washington Post: "Patriot Act Suppresses News 
Of Challenge to Patriot Act." It has to do with the ACLU filing a 
lawsuit challenging something in the Patriot Act, but a different 
provision in the Patriot Act made it illegal for the ACLU to reveal the 
lawsuit. Neat! Link
