Quotes of the day

From Sojourners:

"Years ago, there's no way we could do this. It brings to mind Big Brother, George Orwell, and '1984.'"
-- Keith Sadler, police chief

"No one has the right to know who goes in and out my front door. That's my business. That's not what America is about."
-- David Mowrer, a local laborer

Both commenting on the 165 closed-circuit TV cameras that “will provide live, round-the-clock scrutiny of nearly every street, park and other public space” in Lancaster, PA.
This is very, very, very disturbing.
