    Overview: CALEA is the bill which tries to force telephone infrastructure
    companies to install equipment which provides the FBI remote desktop
    wiretapping capability for 1% of all USA phonecalls. That's an awful lot of
    calls... the kind of volume one needs for a priori suspicion and expert
    system monitoring. Privacy people fight it for obvious reasons. Telephone
    companies fight it because it only gave them $500 million and that's far
    from their cost to install Big Brother into every switch. Updates will
    doubtless eventually arrive, though I couldn't detect anything new in
    usenet or web... or on the nytimes web site. -hedges-
