Details, Details

Everyone is focused on Mel, and whether he is drinking again.

I say: who cares? Check out the guy standing in the back; he's the party animal!

Happy Days Are Here Again!

I was so pleased when I took the online "Real Age" test.

Like so many things, you fill in an extensive questionnaire, and the Ol' Univac spits out an analysis of things.

In this case, the questionnaire focused on my medical history and my health habits, and then helped me determine my "Real Age", rather than my calendar age.

I am happy to report that things are good.

As Real Age reported to me:

Today, May 4, 2007, your RealAge is 63.1!

A Fellow I Can get Behind

Quoting a current candidate seeking the presidency of the United States:

Privacy and Personal Liberty
The biggest threat to your privacy is the government. We must drastically limit the ability of government to collect and store data regarding citizens’ personal matters.

We must stop the move toward a national ID card system. All states are preparing to issue new driver’s licenses embedded with “standard identifier” data – a national ID. A national ID with new tracking technologies means we’re heading into an Orwellian world of no privacy. I voted against the Real ID Act in March of 2005.

To date, the privacy focus has been on identity theft. It was Congress
that created this danger by mandating use of the standard identifier (currently your SSN) in the private sector. For example, banks use SSNs as customer account identifiers because the government requires it.

We must also protect medical privacy. Right now, you’re vulnerable. Under so-called "medical privacy protection" rules, insurance companies and other entities have access to your personal medical information.

Financial privacy? Right now depositing $10,000 in your local bank will generate a “suspicious activity report” to the federal government.

And then there’s the so-called Patriot Act. As originally proposed,

* Expanded the federal government's ability to use wiretaps without judicial oversight;
* Allowed nationwide search warrants non-specific to any given location, nor subject to any local judicial oversight;
* Made it far easier for the government to monitor private internet usage;
* Authorized “sneak and peek” warrants enabling federal authorities to search a person’s home, office, or personal property without that person’s knowledge; and
* Required libraries and bookstores to turn over records of books read by their patrons.

I have fought this fight for many years. I sponsored a bill to overturn the Patriot Act and have won some victories, but today the threat to your liberty and privacy is very real. We need leadership at the top that will prevent Washington from centralizing power and private data about our lives.

"The biggest threat to your privacy is the government."

somebody gets it. . .
