Definitions Matter

In much of life, definitions matter. Especially if the definitions are part of a law.

Which is why analysis of the definitional changes in Arlen Specter's surveillance bill is so interesting:

Specter's bill would mean that the NSA can tap every cell phone in the country of every US citizen, for entirely domestic calls, all without a warrant.

That's a pretty significant change in definitions...
