Den of thieves gets one deeper

Guess who's been appointed to the Department of Homeland Security's "Data Privacy and Integrity Advisory Committee"? None other that Mr. D. Reed Freeman. Not ringing any bells? He's a former executive from Claria, better known as Gator. You probably recognize Gator as one of the more persistent adware/spyware items that you have to clean off of your computer. You might also recall that Claria was sued by The New York Times, Washington Post, Dow Jones, and other media outlets pertaining to Gator popup ads appearing on their web sites. The case was quietly settled out of court.
What will they do for an encore? Oh wait, I know. Muscle through the Social Security "privatization" plan (or whatever they're calling it this week) and put Ken Lay in charge of our investments!
