I love this lady

(Via the Drudge Report)

Now this is the kind of activism I can get behind. In the best tradition of monkey-wrenching, BJ Ostergren is publishing the Social(ist) (In)Security Numbers of our elected public servants on the Internet to publicize how easy it is on this country to obtain the personal information of an individual and commit identity theft.

BJ wants Congress to get off its collective arses and pass a law to help protect this information. While I'm not a big government fan, this strikes me as an appropriate place for government to act.

Of course, business interests are highly concerned. Hey BJ, why don't you add corporate C-whatever-Os to your list?
