May 8: Last Day To Sound Off About The Real ID Act

The Department of Homeland Security would like your opinions on the Real ID Act, but it would like them by May 8th.

For more information about the Read ID Act and its implications to your personal privacy, you can check out the Electronic Frontier Foundation’s website. Here’s some more info from the ACLU.

For those of you who don’t like to comment on things you haven’t read, (there must be at least one of you out there), we’ve included a link to the DHS’s 40 page PDF about the issue. We’re going to read it before we comment. You do as you wish. —MEGHANN MARCO
