You probably wonder where all that Homeland Security funding is going, since
it's not going to secure our ports or the cargo holds of airplanes. Well,
here's an example of your tax dollars in action: An innocent author,
researching a novel, is raided by the feds.
Recently an author has come forward to describe her experience of the
Patriot Act. She was researching a novel with a plot about the theft of
antiquities financing terrorism. She used the Internet and her local
library to find research material. Then in the middle of the night, her home
was invaded by federal agents. She was confined for hours and her computer
and other material was confiscated.

Here's a link to an interview with the author. (Scroll down to the item
"Patriot Act Hits Close to Home".)
