Pentagon Humor

(Via Slashdot) Yet another story in the Government's fascination with databases. Maybe they should just outsource the work to the Direct Marketing Association and save themselves the headache.
"The Washington Post is reporting that the Pentagon is working with a marketing firm to create a database of students ages 16 through college to help them identify recruits. A little chuckle from the Pentagon in the article: '...anyone can opt out of the system by providing detailed personal information that will be kept in a separate suppression file. That file will be matched with the full database regularly to ensure that those who do not wish to be contacted are not, according to the Pentagon.'"
