Law soon against Orwellian laptop searches at border?

How’d you like your laptop to be seized for perhaps months? Even if Washington hadn’t found suspicion of wrongdoing? U.S. Senator Russell Feingold hopes to introduce legislation against such Orwellian tactics.
Meanwhile, if you’re subject to border searches, be sure you back up your data, including your e-book library, just in case you’re among the few chosen for attention. And also be careful not to tote around books offensive to D.C.’s puritans.
I love the way Washington is making America attractive to international trade and tourism. MAJOR sarcasm alert!
