Yep, another one to try to get accustomed to. I saw this theme which is called Very Plain Text at Joey’s new site, The Adventures of Accordion Guy in the 21st Century, and it struck me as being just what I was looking for.

Or not. as the case may be.

Like it?

Hate it?

U.S. District Judge Victor Marrero said the government orders must be subject to meaningful judicial review and that the recently rewritten Patriot Act “offends the fundamental constitutional principles of checks and balances and separation of powers.”


Good!
