As we know, it's often useful to frame technological questions in
a non-technology context for comparison.

Question: Does U.S. Customs (under "new" or "old" rules), have the
authority to inspect in detail (and/or copy) *anything* that a U.S.
citizen might bring in or out of the country in non-computerized
form?  What about credit cards?  Bank statements?  Checkbook
registers?  Personal diaries?  Love letters?  Undeveloped camera
film?  Audio tapes?  Video tapes?  Medical records?

Answers anyone?
