New in Our Surveillance Society

A proposal that secondhand record and book stores report everyone whose stuff they buy to the police has been passed by Madison's Committee of Public Safety (!) and goes before the City Council next week. Yeah, this may not be an outrage on the scale of the FBI hiring a birther who writes for WorldNet Daily to teach its agents about Islam, but it's really telling that such a law is being considered.
