Big Brother Is Watching XX

Not only does Donald Rumsfeld want to ban camera phones in Iraq, we're starting to face increasing limitations on public photography stateside. Soon, they'll want to ban cameras and phones.

Not only are some municipalities seeking to ban said phones in locker rooms and indoor pools, lawmakers in New York want to outlaw subway photography even as Mayor Bloomberg criticizes such plans -- and the MTA steps up its own surveillance efforts. They can watch us, but we can't watch them, it seems.

Amd I thought it odd that I was monitored while taking a taxi from SFO to the Noe Valley this afternoon. Heaven forbid that you're a rail fan.

Update: Thanks to Googlewar for validating that the phrase is not "heaven forbid if."
