Quote of the Night:

"We do know there are 140,000 workers, they're part of something called LUCA -Local Update of Census Addresses. And what they're doing is developing a master address file for all households in America. Now, what this means is the census workers are armed with handheld GPS units, where they simply push a button and their...unit communicates with the satellites, triangulates the location they're standing in and comes us with latitude and longitude coordinates to mark that specific location. They are now going to door-to-door to every residence in the country." --Wednesday's 4th hour guest, privacy advocate Katherine Albrecht reporting on the 2010 census plan.
