I am absolutely disgusted at this privacy stupidity

Margie Boule, a columnist for The Oregonian, wrote two columns about the absolute stupidity of the Transportation (In)Security Administration's "selectee list": "David Nelson, could you step aside for a few moments?"(2003-05-04); and "Those who suspect they're on list are still up in the air -- or not"(2003-05-11). I found these via the article "Databases and Privacy" on slashdot.

I agree wholeheartedly with PetWolverine's comment about the necessity of a privacy amendment to the US Constitution.

I am considering this idea seriously. As in getting politically active...
