In body surfing online (pretty easy to do if you’re a fish), I found something that may be of interest to Morrison County citizens.  Project Censored has released its list of the Top 25 Censored Stories of 2008.  The list includes such items as our loss of habeas corpus (and that includes all Americans, not just terrorists, or foreign nationals, or what have you), President Bush’s move toward martial law, Operation FALCON raids (a giant sweep of suspected “fugitives” directed by former Attorney General Alberto Gonzales), the privatization of America’s infrastructure, a law that exempts torturers from prosecution, the passing on of genetic code that’s been altered by industrial chemicals to our children, the expansion of the Terror Act to include animal rights groups, the contamination of our water by the military and corporations, and much more.

You know, we may just want to keep half an ear on the “Black Helicopter” folks that live in western Morrison County and Todd County.  Let’s not reject all conspiracy theories out of fin.
