Truman’s Hump Day Song of the Week: Every Breath You Take

"I'm watching you ... eat that french fry."

“I’m watching you … eat that french fry.”

The Wall Street Journal reports that the National Security Agency can access 75% of all U.S. Internet traffic. Given the ever-expanding, post-9/11 security bubble, I thought 75% seems low. Here comes the security vs. privacy argument again. Are these the tools of paranoia? Or is this all-encompassing network keeping us safe from the next Boston Marathon attack?

Truman has nothing to hide. He’s from South Carolina, but doesn’t have a Southern accent because he took non-regional diction classes in Columbia. Although his original rescue name was “Dimitri,” he’s not a Russian spy. He welcomes scrutiny of his emails; keyword searches should include “food,” “rabbits” and “leg humping.”

The Police released “Every Breath You Take” three decades ago, a few years before Big Brother and 1984 became an integral part of the pop culture lexicon. Seems more approps than ever.

About Chairman Mao

I like fomenting socialist revolutions and purging my homeland of pseudo-intellectualism and capitalist dogma. I also like sports, dogs and food (although I wouldn't consider myself a foodie).
