What's next, retinal scans?

The push would effectively expand the scope of the Communications Assistance for Law Enforcement Act, a 1994 law that requires the telecommunications industry to build into its products tools that U.S. investigators can use to eavesdrop on conversations with a court order.

Man, seems like everday, more and more of our privacy (and rights) are being thrown out the window, or swept under the carpet.

They say with a court-order, but I don't buy it for one second.

SEE! I TOLD YOU THAT THEY ARE LISTENING! Everyone said I was crazy!

That does remind me, the planning office at my old job had a feeling that the IT director was reading our E-Mails, so we would always put "HI HENRY" on the first line of all interoffice e-mails.
