My buddy Jeff Porten sends along this choice "news" item from the Electronic Frontier Foundation’s April 1st newsletter:
NSA to Open Virtual "Black Box" Office in Second Life
The National Security Agency announced today plans to open a virtual office in the popular online game Second Life. The office will consist of a large black box located in an undisclosed location. "We’ve already eavesdropped on most Americans’ first lives," said NSA spokesperson Narc Informer. "Now we have a whole new world to listen in on." The government also plans to build a virtual secret courtroom to issue virtual carte blanche wiretapping orders and will eventually add a virtual offshore interrogation island for enemy combatant avatars to be held without trial.
