If there is a line between "nanny state" and Big Brother, I think Michael Bloomberg just crossed it:
n the wake of the Boston Marathon bombings, Mayor Michael Bloomberg said Monday the country’s interpretation of the Constitution will “have to change” to allow for greater security to stave off future attacks.
“The people who are worried about privacy have a legitimate worry,” Mr. Bloomberg said during a press conference in Midtown. “But we live in a complex word where you’re going to have to have a level of security greater than you did back in the olden days, if you will. And our laws and our interpretation of the Constitution, I think, have to change.”
It was just yesterday when I noted that the events in Boston had created mixed feelings in me about the increasing use of security cameras. It's people like Bloomberg who keep the skepticism alive in me. That man is downright scary. "Reinterpret the Constitution?" Yean, I'd trust him to do that.
