now they've stolen from libraries.

Lexis-Nexis announced today that identify thives have stolen 32,000 profiles. In the wake of the recent Bank of America, Retail Ventures, and ChoicePoint identify theft scandals, I am particularly disturbed about the following statement regarding Reed Elsevier in the Reuters article:

"The only reason the public is aware of these incidents is because of a California law that requires companies to disclose them, said Jim Dempsey, executive director of the Center for Democracy and Technology, a Washington public-interest group."

I am cynical, naturally, but what do you think? Are the fuckers out to hide the thefts from everyone?

Well, I use to work for one of those crappy financial companies and yes, they would love to hide any of like that info from you. The less you know of it the better for them.
