Sounds OK To Me

Volokh conspirator Orrin Kerr has a post regarding an interesting provision of the Patriot Act, one which has gotten far less publicity than the one which has led my local library to protect our privacy by making it more difficult for my wee wifey and I to attend one another's checkouts and returns. It seems unlikely, but this law which supposedly exists to destroy our civil liberties requires the Department of Justice to collect a database of alleged civil liberties violations. Among those deemed frivolous by the Office of the Inspector General is one I'm inclined to make light of, a complaint that prison officials had laced the prison food with hallucinogenic drugs. I have to wonder if anyone complained of being left out of this program.
