Sunday’s Sermon

Sunday’s sermon was—Forgive Your Enemies.

Toward the end of the service, the Minister asked, "How many of you have forgiven your enemies?"

80% held up their hands. The Minister then repeated his question.

All responded this time, except one small elderly Lady.
"Mrs. Jones?"; "Are you not willing to forgive your enemies?"
"I don’t have any." She replied, smiling sweetly.
"Mrs. Jones, that is very unusual. How old are you?"
"Ninety-eight." she replied.
"Oh Mrs. Jones, would you please come down in front & tell us all how a person can live ninety-eight years & not have an enemy in the world?"
The little sweetheart of a lady tottered down the aisle, faced the congregation, and said: "I outlived the bitches."

Circuit City Says There Should Be No Expectation Of Privacy

As if I needed another reason not to do business at Circuit City, I stumble across this article. The story goes like this:
A woman takes her old computer into Circuit City when buying a new one and askes to have her files transfered to disk. The wonderful employees transfer her files to a floor model computer for some reason and then never delete the files. Mind you that these files contain names, addresses, phone numbers, SS#, DOB, place of work, salary information, tax documents, pictures, email, etc. The floor model eventually gets sold – with all of her files still on it. Circuit city of course says it was her fault for having personal information on her computer in the first place and that there should be no expectation of privacy.

SafeNet loses employee payroll data

It’s the same story, just different names. This time SafeNet has lost employee payroll records. Although they are "one of the world’s top information security companies", it apparently is not against their policy to allow employees to store paper copies of sensitive information stacked in their car. "The company said no policies were violated, and that no new policies are being written as a result of this incident."

Time Warner loses Employee Data

The latest oops, we lost your important data that we should be protecting story goes to Time Warner. "Media and entertainment company Time Warner said Monday that computer backup tapes containing data on 600,000 individuals were lost by an outside data storage firm." What is with this trend of companies losing personal information on customers/employees? Is this information that valuable? If so, who is buying?
