The Census Bureau recently asked all of the Secretary of State offices to be part of their data sharing project. In case you forgot the furor over this in the news, they were seeking not only the metadata on your driver’s licenses, but also whom was a citizen.
After receiving the request, it only took the Illinois SoS office two hours to deny the request.
In November of 2007 my brother killed a squirrel by firing an air rifle from inside the house, traveling through two rooms, through an open window, and into the flesh of the squirrel. At the time I was vegetarian and chronic diarist at the time and I wrote down my feelings immediately afterwards. I recently found my diary and have posted the diary below in its original form.
