Did anyone else see this? http://slashdot.org/article.pl?sid=01/09/23/2235219 Here's a glimpse to perhaps pique your interest. "Larry Ellison has offered help in the creation of a National ID card for the United States by donating Oracle software. Ellison told San Francisco TV channel KPIX that the US needed a national database containing biometric information on its citizens to prevent terrorism:- "We need a national ID card with our photograph and thumbprint digitized and embedded in the ID card,'' he said, the San Jose Mercury reports." I went to the ACLU website and sent a notice to all my representatives letting them know how I feel on this and any other possible infringements on our rights. Please go here and do the same, for all of you who are US citizens. http://www.aclu.org/ This is all very frightening.
