To me, there appear to be some strong parallels with the local apparent
plans for the "transactional records keeping".
"The administration wants to add just four words -- "electronic
communication transactional records" -- to a list of items that the law says
the FBI may demand without a judge's approval. Government lawyers say this
category of information includes the addresses to which an Internet user
sends e-mail; the times and dates e-mail was sent and received; and possibly
a user's browser history. It does not include, the lawyers hasten to point
out, the "content" of e-mail or other Internet communication."
