Congratulations, Choicepoint!

big-brother-award.jpgYou’ve won the Big Brother award for Lifetime achievement!

It was a tough battle for top place this year, and while Choicepoint was the people’s fave, we all know that those privacy elitists don’t really care about the little people.

Other winners included California’s Brittan Elementary. The Department of Education got worst government department, despite stiff competition from Homeland Security and the IRS.

So, Mr. Smith, now that you’re at the very top, where do you go? New levels of cringe-inducement with that DNA database? Something the rest of us haven’t even thought of? Or maybe it’s time for new directions?

We’re sure you’re thinking about these big questions in private, and rest assured: We’re not watching nearly as closely as you do.
