"They who would give up an essential liberty for temporary security, deserve neither liberty or security" Benjamin Franklin

I have that quote hanging in my cube at work. I see it as a reminder of the pitfalls of taking security too far. I don't mean to say that it shouldn't be taken seriously, the safety and security of America should be paramount. But Homeland Security lends itself to fanaticism, and it is sometimes hard to see the line between patriot and zealot.
