well, i can’t say this is surprising, but still scary. police in seattle hassling someone for taking pictures largely due to the colour of his skin. just one more reason i’m happy to not be currently living in the united states of paranoia. what was it burroughs said? ah yes:

Thanks for a country where
nobody’s allowed to mind their
own business.

Thanks for a nation of finks.

that sadly seems to sum it up nicely.
