Writes Joe from Boston:

Reporting from a city under siege.  Train stations closed, streets shut down, military helicopters flying overhead, and state & local police armed with rifles and shotguns every ten feet checking IDs and performing illegal searches and seizures.  I was nearly arrested this morning heading into the office and had my briefcase searched – twice – within a distance of fifty feet.  Police don’t like it when you remind them of the necessity for probable cause or articulable individualized suspicion.
