It is the result of the "religous right" seeking to stamp their

constitution on Islam, but then they attempt to ban gay marriage
because it goes against christian tenets, or they want to put the
ten commandments in every classroom and courtroom in the country.
Go figure... And believe me it is only going to get worse before it
gets better,, especially if Bush "wins" (more acurately - usurps)
the next election.

To me, it seems very strange that the "land of the free" has become

Here the rule is, if you don't want me taking pictures of you and
your stuff in public, then stop emitting light in my direction. The
only restriction currently under discussion is taking secret
photographs of people undressing in a gym and the like.


I second that and am shure that it's similar in Netherland, France,
to name some.
No one takes notice of someone taking pictures, except of feeling

Reading all the answers in the thread I'm getting worried about what's
going on in US society. And it seems not only to be related to
9/11, terrorism,

several threads,
when someone with a different meaning is asap bashed by others.
No gentlemen anymore...?

Where, Oh where is my Dseventy?
I'm waiting, just waiting, so patiently,
Has it left Thailand yet? Did it leave today?
Is it on the cargo ship? Is it on it's way?

(Is it wrong to write love songs to your new camera? I know Ken Rockwell has a name for photog's who love their equipment even more than the pictures they produce, but I wonder if psychologists have come up with a name yet for techies who lust after new gadgets and almost get sensually excited about the newest cameras? Or am I the only one who almost gets aroused by those glossy brochures of the newest DSLR's?)
