Experience music on the meadow! Final ZooTunes lineup announced!

Earlier this month, a few Sloggers requested their FBI files—I got my confirmation letter from the DOJ a few days ago. Got yours?

For those of you who'd like to join in this little experiment (an unscientific core sample of whether and how extensively the FBI has been keeping tabs on folks), you can request your FBI file here. The form takes just a few seconds to fill out, print, and pop in the mail.

And if you're curious, here's a story about one lady who requested her file on a whim and was shocked by how closely the FBI had been following her—details sitting outside her house surveilling her, following her to the movies, etc.—several years ago.

Join the club! Who knows? Maybe if enough Sloggers make the request, we can have a surveillance-themed party and compare files...
