1. Saw him on several interviews right after, but not since.
Bob only gets into the light when he says something controversial, even here in Ga.

7. I was just wondering about this myself.
Was any explanation ever given as to why he failed to appear at Gore's speech -- I missed it, if so.

8. He was there by satellite hookup, which worked, BTW, in the run through.
It was after C-Span started broadcasting that they lost the feed.

9. Just googled his name and here he is on an article about the new
Patriot Act on FOX. Good for him, Mr. Barr is on the right side of the issue.

The measure has civil libertarians protesting what they say is yet another power grab for the executive branch and one more loss for free speech.

"It's definitely problematic and chilling," said Lisa Graves, senior counsel for legislative strategy at the American Civil Liberties Union , which has written letters to the chairmen and ranking members of the House and Senate Judiciary Committees, pointing out that the provision wasn't subject to hearings or open debate.

Some conservatives say they too are troubled by the measure.

"It concerns me greatly," said Bob Barr, former U.S. prosecutor and Republican representative from Georgia. "It clearly raises serious concerns about First Amendment rights."
