SELF-PROMOTION: On the Reason site today, I
rant a bit about a forthcoming sequel to the USA Patriot Act. The article includes this sentence, which I'd like to apologize for:

"The White House claims that it hadn't seen the draft before the leak, though that is belied by the document's control sheet, which clearly shows that Vice President Dick Cheney received a copy in mid-January, along with House Speaker Dennis Hastert."

Just to clarify: This means that Cheney and Hastert both received copies of the document. It does not mean that Rep. Hastert and the document were stuffed into an envelope and routed to Cheney, though I must admit I enjoy that image.
