From nealpollack.com comes the story 'Santa Fe Police Detain Library Patron
over Chat-Room Visit'. A former public defender in NM was briefly detained by the Secret Service for supposedly making threats against Bush in a chat room. He says he's going to sue. There's more here.
He also testified about "measures proposed in both houses [of the NM legislature] would put the New Mexico Legislature on record as opposing the U.S. Patriot Act and direct state police not to aid federal authorities in actions infringing on civil liberties." Neither measure passed.
