    Of course a parent would have to know about this before requesting that their private information be protected. To me this wreaks of sleeze. The default should be to protect privacy; especially when it comes to children.

    The military has been making their recruting quotas lately by offering large sign up bonuses for anyone who enlists in a combat MOS. The military gets enough 18 year old kids who can't resist the thought of enough money to buy a new car, to keep the cannon fodder bin full.:frown:

    Most of the legislation passed by the Bush administration has had a lot of fine print.
