EXTREMISM IN PURSUIT OF . . . . WHAT?
A Canadian mental health professional was barred entry to the US because a search of the internet came up with a 2001 publication in which he acknowledged using LSD - four decades earlier (NY Times, May 14)! A US Government spokesperson defended the action by saying that drug users are not welcome in America, and all possible means will be used to identify them. The thwarted visitor, Andrew Feldmar, noted: "I should warn people that the electronic footprint you leave on the Net will be used against you. It cannot be erased."
