ESTAÇÕES DIFERENTES

"The most important things are the hardest things to say. They are the things you get ashamed of, because words diminish them - words shrink things that seemed limitless when they were in your head to no more than living size when they're brought out. But it's more than that, isn't it? The most important things lie too close to wherever your secret heart is buried, like landmarks to a treasure your enemies would love to steal away. And you may make revelations that cost you dearly only to have people look at you in a funny way, not understanding what you've said at all, or why you thought it was so important that you almost cried while you were saying it. That's the worst, I think. When the secret stays locked within not for want of a teller, but for want of an understanding ear."

Stephen King - "Different Seasons"

O perigo vem novamente do Oeste...

"Quietly though, a few districts around the country, from Indiana to Connecticut to Long Island, have begun to integrate breath-testing devices into the regular school day, a move that adds a new wrinkle to the ongoing struggle between students' privacy rights and a school's duty to limit drug and alcohol abuse. "

Bem, sou só eu, ou isto tem uns contornos muito Orwellianos para o meu gosto?...

Se bem que o direito á privacidade nos EUA ameaça tornar-se cada vez mais um luxo e não uma prerrogativa absoluta da cidadania livre e própria de um Estado de Direito...
Já não surpreende, mas assusta sempre...
