In an article today about the Patriot Act, the Times notes:

In fact, most of the fine points in the 342-page law have generated minimal debate. But at least two parts have caused a furor across party lines... [One is a] clause granting the government authority to go through personal library, business, medical and other personal records...
This provision that has supposedly generated anger across party lines: didn't Republicans pass it recently in a pure party-line vote?

Memo to the New York Times: look up "across" in the dictionary.
