Just a quick one

I haven't verified this, but in the "privacy taken too far" department: In Germany privacy laws are so strict that German universities cannot reveal who they have given degrees to. Now that's privacy taken to a ridiculous level!

In the "deserves more attention, but I'm short on time department" we have Congress declaring hearings because two wannabe reality show stars manage to sneak into a state dinner - two people who are not unknown in Washington circles, from what I've seen - a week after the event. A month after 13 people are killed and many more injured in the Fort Hood (terrorist) attack they're still putting a hearing off. I don't understand.
