Quote of the day: Patriot Act needs tweaking

“In the aftermath of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, Americans were justifiably angry, afraid and eager to catch and punish the terrorists who attacked us. I, like most Americans, demanded justice.

"In this climate of urgency, the USA Patriot Act was hurriedly passed without careful committee analysis or debate. In fact, it was not possible for congressmen and senators to even read the bill before it passed." --US Sen. Rand Paul, R-Kentucky
