Don't Give Barney Fife Another Bullet

Scott at Grits for Breakfast says it so much better than I can:

I don't get it. How did we get past the post-9/11 session in 2003 without expanding wiretap authority (at the time David Dewhurst declined to pursue it saying he wanted to respect civil liberties), but NOW in 2007 it's urgent Texas do so?

I don't know if it is too late, but contact your House member immediately and let them know WE DON'T NEED THIS BILL PASSED! Fort Worth's own Rep. Lon Burnam called a point of order on the bill because the bill addresses more than one topic. SB 11 was pulled down and postponed until Monday morning, which may mean the POO is sustainable (I'd hope so, it's entirely valid - the bill's a hodge podge). Please contact your House member and let them know how you feel about SB 11 today.
