    The first link goes to the next cartoon I think. This might be the correct one ? http://www.thenation.com/blog/175603/nsa-comes-clean#

    This is a good one too but not the one I intended. I have changed the link to the correct one. Thanks for pointing out the error.

    Ted Rall’s comic should have some sort of warning for rape survivors; “having my e-mails looked at” is in no way the same fucking thing as being raped. Now I’m going to go over here and shake for a while, thanks ever so much.
