GALILEO AND CAPPS II. What the hell is Galileo? you might wonder. And what does it have to do with me? If you ever fly, rent a vehicle, or make a hotel reservation, you'd better check out that link.

Galileo is a subsidiary of something called Cendant. If you were to boycott Cendant -- which wouldn't be a bad idea -- you'd have to boycott about half the travel industry (Avis, Budget, cheaptickets.com., Howard Johnson, Travelodge, Super 8, etc., etc.) and a good bit of the real estate and financial industries (Coldwell Banker, Century 21, and a host of lesser-knowns).

This is another heads-up from Rick in Germany, who sent such a bundle of weirdness today I couldn't begin to blog it all. On the lighter side of the police state, take a look at this U.S. news item from freedom's friend in Deutschland. Do these cops and their bosses have no shame?
