From the Quotation of the day mailing list, 2014-03-22:
"I know the capacity that is there to make tyranny total in America, and we must see to it that this agency [National Security Agency] and all agencies that possess this technology operate within the law and under proper supervision so that we never cross over that abyss. That is the abyss from which there is no return." -- Frank Church, U.S. Senator, 1975.
