1984

Been seeing references to 1984 alot lately, with stories like this one in Houston, where the Chief of Police wanted to place surveillance cameras in apartment buildings and private homes, or BushCo's decision to do unconstitutional widespread wire-tapping.
So I placed an order for one, so I can read it. Shameful, I am a huge advocate of privacy, and haven't read it. Or Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, and I love science-fiction. At least I own that book, one of the very few books I brought with me, when I moved. I'm sure there are other books that are considered must reads, but none that I can think of at the moment.
