I'm glad you posted it—I will take a look. From what I can see from this article, a combination of this law and some stupidity on the part of the authorities may have ruined this poor guy's life. Geez. Just what we need, more stupid laws. People from other countries visiting here get the sense from all the rules, laws, restrictions, etc we have that we may not be quite as free as we think we are.

And, in some ways, they'd be correctly surmising what others fail to see. There is a general trend towards limiting our rights, you'd have to be blind, or brainwashed not to see that in the name of so called "national security" authorities can do whatever they want to whomever, and not have to justify their actions.

I had an interesting conversation the other day with an old timer in town, who was a child in the 30's in Germany. There are some scary times ahead unless we make some changes, that's for sure.
