Fuck you. Strong letter to follow.

Capital Hill Blue has made a variety of outrageous assertions about the Bush administration over the last few years: Bush is drinking again, Secret Service agents say that Cheney was drunk when he shot his friend, etc.

Often, there is no confirmation, and they're such wild stories that they're easy to doubt. Sometimes, there is swift confirmation of the bad news:

Despite what the naysayers claim, we get it first and get it right. We reported on Bush's temper tantrums a full year before it appeared in Newsweek. We revealed Bush's executive order allowing the National Security Agency to spy on Americans on June 7, 2004 -- 18 months before the New York Times printed the story. Last week we revealed President Bush ordered Vice President Cheney to go public about his hunting "accident." Time got around to it a few days later.

However, these stories, true or not, obviously got under someone's skin:

Just how widespread, and uncontrolled, this latest government assault has become hit close to home last week when one of the FBI's National Security Letters arrived at the company that hosts the servers for this web site, Capitol Hill Blue.

The letter demanded traffic data, payment records and other information about the web site along with information on me, the publisher.

Now that's a problem. I own the company that hosts Capitol Hill Blue. So, in effect, the feds want me to turn over information on myself and not tell myself that I'm doing it. You'd think they'd know better.

I turned the letter over to my lawyer and told him to send the following message to the feds:

Fuck you. Strong letter to follow.
