    Most of this will not be new to the regulars here. But I do want to draw attention to the excerpt about private business. Privatizing everything isn't a solution. Not only that, but it brings it with a host of new, differently enacted, yet similar abuses. As for everything else, well, I've been saying it till I'm blue in the face.

    Jack Balkin has a good blog that I occasionally read -- Balkinization. It's a pretty good blog.

    About the article --- we see this a lot with privacy violations. Think about the ways companies like Choicepoint suck up every piece of data about you that they can get their hands on - and then they sell it back to the government. No harm no foul. It's a nightmare.
