Murphy's Law - US Govt. caught again For those of you who don't know (and I am sure most of you do) Murphy's Law states that anything that can go wrong, will go wrong.

The US is about to bring in chipped passports that BROADCAST (on command) an individual's name, address and digital photo to a computerized reader. Identity theft is the fastest rising white collar crime in the UK. I expect that the USA also suffers from it. How long do you think it will take criminals to get hold of a reader to snatch your identity as pass through an airport? Source There's more info if you click the link. I only pasted the first few paragraphs.
