    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.

    I wouldn't worry too much. This isn't nearly as damaging as some of the other scatology being legislated this week.

    For instance, you probably didn't even notice the passage of H.R. 2679:

    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:

    The requirements of the No Child Left Behind Act is still a primary source for finding young people though.

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