Makes sense to me.
Now, it seems to me that some folks on the right are screaming about this invasion of privacy. Which would be fine if they had some kind of history of championing the rights of privacy, but it seems to me their love of individual privacy is newly minted.
It also seems to me that there are a number of folks that are typically screaming about issues of individual privacy who are strangely quiet on this case, which I take to mean they like the concept in general but are reluctant to defend Joe.
I personally see nothing wrong with, when a name comes to light, checking your agency records to see what might pop up – if nothing else, you’ll be better prepared for the media inquiry which might well ensue if THEY find out something’s amiss. And I don’t have any heartburn whatsoever with the notion that if you happen to be thrust into the limelight, there’s going to be attention on your life.
Anyone here see it differently?
