a hoax? or is that just what THE MAN wants you to think?

Categories: , , ,

So there's been debate about whether the student at U-Mass Dartmouth actually did get a visit from Homeland Security.

Maybe he was trying to bring attention to what it means to live in country where the government snoops into your reading materials. But if this is a stunt, it seems to actually undermine the intent--it gives skeptics reason to say that opposition to the Patriot Act is hysteria. Yeesh. The plot thickens.

Update (12/24/05): 'Twas a hoax. The Boston Globe reports.
