Did you know that because of the Patriot Act (or so I was told) that it is illegal to shoot any federal property, indefinitely? This includes monuments, sculptures, statues, etc. that are owned by the Federal Government. How does everyone feel about this? I was a little distraught when I was told I couldn't shoot a quote etched in concrete in front of a federal courthouse this weekend, but I was even more bothered when the officer told me that it included all federal property. Talk about trying to run us into the ground with paranoia. Great administration we have, huh?
