    A sign of the times, huh? No particular point of view on this, I just thought it was cool. :)

    No, sounds too much like Big Brother is watching all of us. I don't like the idea.

    now that corzine has discovered advanced technology, perhaps the next futuristic device he should try is the so-called "seatbelt".

    How do you figure? It's point-to-point conferencing, and it's only for a few months while he recovers. It's not as if they're advocating putting webcams on everyone's workstations so they can permanently spy on them.

    However, you can't argue with zim about that fascinating seat belt technology. Corzine might also consider getting a driver who isn't suicidal.

    My assumption is that if it looks too slick, don't trust it at all. And I promise you that it works every time.

    Aren't the people who usually drive governors around off-duty cops?

    I know Ahnold's driver got caught going that fast through my county with a cop behind the wheel. Nobody got in any trouble, as I recall.

    The guy driving was texting on his phone as well. Unbelievable. I didn't know he was a Dem though until I saw conservatives making fun of him not wearing a seat belt.
