The noose tightens

Frank James has a good post on the nutcases that are now in charge.
This is a good companion article but I didn't know how to put a easy link in a comment on his post.
This is a wonderful quote,By Mason Resnick writing at www.adorama.com. click on it to read the whole article.
"In this era where it's apparently OK for five-year-olds to be strip-searched, cancer survivors are subject to humiliating pat-downs, and X-ray machines now display full-body scans at airports by homeland security personnel in the interest of "national security", I refuse to lose my innocence. I will continue to do street photography, and will continue to be open about what I’m doing because I know I’m not doing anything illegal, creepy, or unsavory. I will continue to explore how people, places, and things look like photographed. If Garry Winogrand, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Elliott Erwitt, Lizette Model, Robert Frank and William Klein (and many contemporary street shooters) can do it, so should I. I’ll use common sense and awareness of the current climate to avoid rare confrontations like the one I experienced yesterday, but I’ll keep shooting."

Here is another link to a fellow who makes photographic resistance statements.
