05/20/2003 Archived Entry: "Total Information Awareness gets a makeover"

THEY GOT RID OF THE CREEPY EYE-IN-THE-PYRAMID LOGO. And now, in a report demanded by Congress, the Pentagon has completed its equivalent of a face-lift, tummy tuck, and boob job. The [Twilight Zone theme music here] Total Information Awareness system is now the [Barney the Dinosaur theme music here] Terrorism Information Awareness system. And surely, nobody could possibly be opposed to having the helpful folks at the Pentagon protecting us against ... our own bank accounts, credit cards, medical data, and telephone records ... as long as it's for the sake of terrorism.

Well. We can all feel lots and lots better now.
