Gregory J. Millman writes about the IRS nabbing his phone records in 1991: “Outside the DOJ, any law-enforcement entity with subpoena power can obtain phone records without notice.”
To this date, I do not know how many of my phone records, covering what period of time, went to the investigator working on both the IRS and DOJ investigations of a tax story published in 1991. The government never told me and the telephone company refused to release the information. I never again phoned my sources on that story. Maybe that’s what people mean by “chilling effect.”

AP photographer Sue Ogrocki talks about photographing children at Plaza Towers Elementary School in Moore, Okla., Monday.
In the 30 minutes that I was outside the destroyed school, I photographed about a dozen children pulled from the rubble.
I focused my lens on each one of them. Some looked dazed. Some cried. Others seemed terrified.
But they were alive.
I know that some students were among those who died in the tornado, but for a moment, there was hope in the devastation.
