Vote Kafka!

The U.S. Department of Justice has asked an appellate court to keep its arguments secret for a case in which privacy advocate John Gilmore is challenging federal requirements to show identification before boarding an airplane.

"We're dealing with the government's review of a secret law that now they want a secret judicial review for," one of Gilmore's attorneys, James Harrison, said in a phone interview Sunday. "This administration's use of a secret law is more dangerous to the security of the nation than any external threat."

"How are people supposed to follow laws if they don't know what they are?" Harrison said.

    Knowledge of the laws is Ultraviolet clearance. Knowledge that there are laws is Ultraviolet clearance. Please terminate yourself, Citizen.

    Colonel "Bat" Guano : I think you're some kind of deviated prevert. I think General Ripper found out about your preversion, and that you were organizing some kind of mutiny of preverts. Now MOVE!
