Best Viewed with IE or Opera. Sorry, Firefox works, but loses some sidebar layout,
'my profile' and other stuff... Anybody with a fix, please leave a comment. Many thanks in advance.

That said, if you must use Firefox (and I don't blame you, it's become my browser of choice, too)
...get the "IE Tab" extension. This allows you to view problem pages with the IE rendering engine. Very cool!

IRS Abuses Offer Insight Into Dangers of Wiretap Program

A lot of Americans responded with a shrug to the revelation that the National Security Agency may be searching for terrorists by tapping U.S. phone calls and e-mails without court permission and in violation of federal law.
To some degree, that response is understandable. The threat that government spying may run amok is pretty theoretical, while the threat of terrorist attack is very real in the wake of Sept. 11. None of us has forgotten watching those towers fall.
However, if you really want to understand what might be at stake in the NSA controversy in terms of our freedom and privacy, the Internal Revenue Service offers a compelling case study in what it calls its Questionable Refund Program.
