No More Shushing, This is a Free speech Zone

John Ashcroft; or as I affectionately like to call him, Crisco Johnny, is pissing off librarians with the Patriot Act, specifically provision 2115 which requires them to hand over user records at the drop of a hat. But the librarians are fighting back.

See, people forget how important librarians are. We know where the books you want are located. If you have information needs, we have the information. That article on microfiche? I have it. And if you want it, then you'd better not step on my toes, Mr. Attorney General. Or suddenly, you might not have the legal briefs you nee to prosecute Tommy Chong for making glass pipes. "Oops, sorry, I don't know where that law went, Mr. Ashcroft."

Don't fuck with Librarians. We know what you read.
