Yesterday, I posted an essay expressing my ambivalence about New York City's decision to conduct random searches at subway stations. You'll find no equivocating in these excellent essays from the ultraliberal Counterpunch and the libertarian Reason. Their point: These random searches are a flagrant violation of the Fourth Amendment and an ineffective and possibly counterproductive means to prevent terrorism. Freedom-loving people should not stand for them.
Thanks, boys, for reminding me where I stand.
