Hey buddy - want to buy some phone records?

The Chicago Sun-Times reported a couple of days ago about how easy it is to obtain the phone call records for virtually any telephone number in the United States. If you want to see just how easy it is, check this out.

Unfortunately, the FCC is more concerned with stamping out occasional images of the female breast on cable TV than with protecting the privacy of American citizens. Of course, as long as the Bush administration continues to insist that American citizens have no constitutional right to privacy, I have my doubts that anything will change.

In the meantime, give very careful consideration to the calls you make from your home or cell phone. You never know who else is paying attention.
