Politico reports: This week's informal congressional hearing on the National Security Agency's surveillance program has been canceled, according to The Guardian's Glenn Greenwald, who was expected to testify via satellite.
Democratic congressman Alan Grayson and a bipartisan group of congressman were expected to hear from Greenwald and other critics of the NSA's surveillance practices on Wednesday, according to a Guardian report from last week.

It has been very liberating for me to have the capability to embed videos (although I haven't learned any graphics/videos except You Tubes) in my posts.
