Local School Does Good and Other Stuff

A local high school is planning a protest against using school time to recite the Pledge of Allegiance tomorrow.

I hope they do well.

In another piece of good news, parts of the Patriot Act giving the President the authority to engage in warrantless searches and seizures without showing probable cause was declared unconstitutional today.

I don't know where the court got that idea. It's almost as if they think some part of the Constitution says:

The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.
