Well, right on cue, the FBI goes and gets caught bugging the office of the Democratic mayor of Philadelphia indignant link. I guess you don't have to be that radical to get on their bad side. Coincidence that Mayor Street is black, I'm sure. I'm certain the FBI, despite its clear history of spying on and disrupting African American organizations and activists, has cleaned up its act and is now much more of an equal opportunity civil rights violator. Anyway, there was a reason I did not add "your local mayor's office" as a place that is safe to have a conversation if you need assurance that it is not being monitored. (See: Big Brother's M.O. for the briefest of introductions to cautions activists must take in the face of government snooping.)
