I'm not worried about it, I just think the government is greatly over-stepping its bounds - in many ways.
Vote Ron Paul!
I know what the novel's about - I was just commenting on the quote by the writer of the review.
Ray has made it quite clear that the book is not about censorship!
Phil~ Turned to streets in Chicago, and notice some gas-stations at $3.85 a gallon for gas. That's pretty recent. Couple years ago one of those 'radar' looking vans pulled up next to me at a stoplight. Didn't know what it was then. THAT was a Google mapping vehicle.
Hope to meet you when you are here in Southern California soon.
This technology is scary. I mean, you can practically look inside the windows of people's houses. What next? Looking inside the windows of people's houses? I suspect lots of this kind of free-wheeling information will be regrettable in the near future by the very overload of privacy thrown out the window.
Sure, the images are recent, because they only started taking these images a year or two ago. But I doubt that they will be updating them too often. Hence my comments about being "immortalised" by these images. Yes, they might catch you doing something you'd rather not be seen doing, or they might reveal what's in your house. But they might also catch you on a bad hair day - oh the shame, the shame!
C.Y. Lee, author of Summer Drum Song, at the theatre but off camera, was a member of the same writing group as Ray...fifty or sixty years ago.

Notice the mention of the screenplay Dandelion Wine. When I rang him last Monday, he said he was writing the screenplay all week, and Saturday he said that he just finished it on Friday. So there you go.
