It won't be as easy as the Patriots think to "put all this" behind them:

"It's over. We're moving on."

So said New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick during Friday's televised news conference about the videotaping dirty tricks used against the New York Jets. The tactic cost him and his team $750,000 in fines. The Pats also lose a first-round draft choice if they make the playoffs, a second- and third-round pick if they don't.

Patriot acts

This is, of course, George Bush's fault. If he had not insisted on making 9/11 an excuse to spy on ordinary Americans going about their usual business, thus creating a culture in which the violation of our privacy is accepted as routine, such an outrage would never even have been attempted:
