Person of the Day: GWB, Alpha-Mail

JANUARY 5, 2007
GEORGE W. BUSH who, in the midst of the recent holiday season, quietly OKAYED WARRANTLESS MAIL SEARCHES. While signing a bill requiring that government agents get warrants to open first class mail he issued a SIGNING STATEMENT that the executive will still make the determination itself as to whose mail it will open! Chico Marx was right. There ain't no Sanity Clause.
