    RL,
    Don’t forget about giving your personal information to log on. I remember being told that our social security number was very private and don’t ever use it for ID. I used to protest when banks among other entities would ask me for my SS #. As a nation we have become way to complacent with giving away our civil liberties for a false sense of security. It reminds me of the scene in O Brother Where Art Thou?

    “Why are you out in the middle of nowhere?
    I had to be at that crossroads last midnight.
    Sell my soul to the devil.
    Ain’t it a small world, spiritually speakin’?
    Pete and Delmar just been saved. I’m the only one still unaffiliated.
    It’s no laughin’ matter.
    What’d the devil give you for it?
    Well, he taught me to play this here guitar real good.
    Oh, son, for that you traded your everlasting soul?
    Well, I wasn’t usin’ it. “

    We have to address the persistent and growing problem of identity theft. Giving out SS#’s is hardly a solution, but do you, Ben, have any better ideas on what to do? There has to be a better way.

    I bet there’s an app for that.

    warning: very bad language.

    Bob, the image of you seeing your own reflection in the monitor is brilliant and says it all.
    Big Brother is here, and he is us.
