Where in the World is Edward Snowden?

Well, he sneaks around the world from Hawaii to Hong Kong
He's a whistle-blower from the USA to Russia
He'll hang with WikiLeaks from Quito to Havana
Tell me where in the world is Edward Snowden?

George Orwell's 110th birthday

Today is George Orwell's 110th birthday.  His seminal publication of Nineteen Eighty-Four (in 1949), provided words of caution against a central government with broad surveillance and oversight into the lives, language, and thoughts of their citizens.  As the Hunt for Edward Snowden continues around the world amidst revelations of the NSA PRISM Surveillance Program, Americans and all citizens should reflect upon the warnings of the British author in his dystopian novel.
