Multiple privacy stories from CNet

I'm on a custom email news list from CNet. If you follow information & tech law at all, I highly recommend it. I get IP, privacy, and media law stuff, and it's usually 2-5 stories a day. Today, it was maybe 10 stories, and a much higher proportion than normal were privacy related. This increased visibility for privacy rights (not to mention the Fourth Amendment) is a clear outgrowth of the DoJ's neverending quest for more surveillance under less judicial supervision. To wit:
Week in review: The spying game

Gonzales: NSA may tap 'ordinary' Americans' email

White House disclose details on surveillance

Patriot Act email spying approved

Bill would force web sites to delete personal info
Four steps back, and one longshot chance at a step forward.
