ACLU: Safe and Free in Times of Crisis
The September 11, 2001 attacks on America changed us many ways. Some of
these changes, like a renewed sense of national purpose, are
heartening. Yet much else is deeply disturbing, and perhaps most
disturbing is the government?s apparent belief that our society cannot be
both safe and free.

RFIDs Out of California IDs!
RFID tags are small embedded chips in documents and objects that respond
to remote requests with identifying data. Originally conceived as a way
to identify and track objects, RFID tags are increasingly being used to
tag and "authenticate" human beings. That's a different world entirely:
if RFID tags are included in California IDs without safeguards for your
privacy, your personal information could be scanned without your
knowledge or permission, exposing you to the risk of tracking, stalking,
and identity theft.
