book party

David Cole, a Georgetown University law professor who is known for his liberal views, and whose new book Enemy Aliens, about the USA PATRIOT Act, is now in bookstores, knows how to throw a book party: He invites the man who is credited with crafting much of the controversial law. That man is Viet Dinh, another Georgetown University law professor. The article tries to be funny by setting up the debate between those two. Worth a read for the contrast between the two professors’ views on civil liberties.
