Gary Sent an Email! Vol. 1This is a collection of links sent via email by one of my fellow Heathen cohorts here in BFI (bummed-fucked Iowa, FYI). Most of the links here relate to secularism in some way but a few don't. At any rate, this will be the first in an ongoing series owing to the fact that he sends stuff out almost daily (and the old codger is in no danger of dying anytime soon either...).More Like This
Meet the NSA Whistleblower Edward SnowdenThe 29-year-old source behind the biggest intelligence leak in the NSA's history explains his motives, his uncertain future and why he never intended on hiding in the shadows.More Like This
The individual responsible for one of the most significant leaks in US political history is Edward Snowden, a 29-year-old former technical assistant for the CIA and current employee of the defence contractor Booz Allen Hamilton.
