The NSA reason the constitutionality of their whole operations in the basis of the two ruling combined: “The court [reasoning] that the NSA data collection orders [is] constitutional because all they collect is the very information in which Smith tells us that telephone consumers have no reasonable expectation of privacy under Katz” (Barnett). However, Judge Richard Leon of the District Court of Washington, D.C., has called that privacy and the Fourth Amendment, “[t]he right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, paper, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures” has been violated (NSA Violates Amendment). Leon notes that although the Smith V. Maryland case ruled that Smith had no reasonable expectation of privacy, time has changed along with technology. The misconception of these cases is problematic as now everyone is a suspect. In the end, “every American is to be treated the way Michael Lee Smith was treated in Smith v. Maryland. But unlike the pen register on his phone line that lasted just a few days, each of us would have pen registers on our phone every day for the rest of our lives” (Barnett).

    Girl used to mean small boy or girl. The word “girl” was not initially used to refer to a specific gender. It used to mean “child” or “young person” regardless of the gender. Obviously, our language has changed and now girl is gender specific and sometimes age specific. This evolution can often be refered to as slang. Slang is often derived from old words with new meanings or completely new words with new meanings. Because of its unstructured nature, many linguists believe that slang is…

Why am I writing again—click click tap. click clack taaaa-pp. As a person who has a vendetta against writing, the sounds of the keyboard distract me.

    What do you do when you think you’re being followed by some creepy old guy at 1 in the morning, and your manager has disappeared off the face of the planet? Find the nearest customer and pretend they’re your best friend, apparently. That’s exactly what Jay did, as she watched the shadow trail her from the corner of her eye. Creepy old guys were a normal part of working the overnight shift at a 24-hour convenience store, but usually they were only after a pack of crisps or a carton of beer,…
