You'd think that there are other options that offer the same efficiency while respecting privacy. The potential for abuse is too great. I'd like to see our state and federal governments looking into other options.
The thing about being an Indian is that you're an Indian, no matter what. It doesn't matter if you play soccer or a tuba, it doesn't matter if you're on the football team or the drill team, it doesn't matter if you lead the cheers or the jeers. You're still part of that "Honor, Pride, & Tradition."

I'd like to see the legislators make it a federal offense to steal electronic data, or even spamming.  Now, THAT would be great!
Go Indians!!!

How is this news?  Your automobiles, if they are newer, also come equipped with electronic systems that identify you along with how fast you were going, etc., when the accident occurs. I don't like that, either.

How is this not news? It's a major privacy issue. If nothing else, we can at least be informed of the issue.
