You really have to get this whole series, which is 12 CDs in all. Tons of great stuff from the on stage career of the Mothers of Invention.

Secret Text in Senate Bill Would Give FBI Warrantless Access to Email Records

A PROVISION SNUCK INTO the still-secret text of the Senate’s annual intelligence authorization would give the FBI the ability to demand individuals’ email data and possibly web-surfing history from their service providers without a warrant and in complete secrecy. If passed, the change would expand the reach of the FBI’s already highly controversial national security letters. The FBI is currently allowed to get certain types of information with NSLs — most commonly, information about the name, address, and call data associated with a phone number or details about a bank account.

Introduction
Feel free to circle me, but if you want me to circle you back, then please have some content in your profile, use your real name, and provide some information on who you are, and some clear indication of what interests you. Please don't use a stock photo fro your profile pic - that's a red flag.

I suffer from a low curiosity threshold.  I am a space systems engineer, blogger, podcaster and a skeptical but open-minded investigator.   Especially interested in space, astronomy, and the search for intelligent ETs.  Although most of my G+ posts are science or space related, I also spout off on music from time, totally unqualified though I am.

My two closely related podcasts are: Unseenpodcast.com and wowsignalpodcast.com. To join the panel pool for the Unseen Podcast, please visit the Participant's Community and knock on the door. We usually record Friday nights on the East Coast of the US

Trying to keep my middle-aged body in shape and a bit safer by learning Krav Maga.  Train at Pure Performance Martial Arts in Rockville, Maryland.
