And Then the Ears Pop Up With a Satisfying "SPROING!"

Are you concerned about illegal wiretapping, or the government's current desire to press firemen into an army of makeshift snoops? That's nothin'.

(It makes for some very interesting editorials in the DC Universe version of Salon, that's for sure.)
