Mrs. Scholar's November column 

This month it's about surveillance, the Patriot Act, and privacy. It turned out she never had read 1984 until getting ready for this column. We don't agree on the Patriot Act, I think, but her use of the Stasi example at the end is from a conversation we had. I am moved by it to finally watch The Lives of Others, and so it goes top of the Netflix queue. Hope she'll watch it with me!
