they were all like hurrah, and i emailed suggesting that since i could not thank my senator for stopping it (as he was pro patriot act) that i be given a form to basically tell them off and suggest that in the future they do vote against. in the email i mentioned this forewarning (in the hurrah link):
Rumor has it that Frist is going to keep trying to take the vote until Dec 31.
And guess what? it happened.
edit: wait what
edit again: nevermind i was right
