Veterans Affairs Sends Mass Apology

Every single veteran in America, from the Vietnam War and forward, received a letter yesterday from the office of Veterans Affairs, warning them of the theft in early May of a laptop containing personal data of many military personnel. In addition to an apology and acknowledging the loss affecting 26 million vets, the letter also contained a 1-800 number to report phishing or suspicious activity.

To cement its penitence, the office of Veteran Affairs should offer to go on latrine duty for the next month.

(Thanks to Joe and Jason!)
