    RFID your kids... or else!

    Kids in a town in California are being made to wear RFID tags in school to allow their movements to be tracked.

    But students and parents, who weren't told about the RFID chips until they complained, are upset over what they say are surreptitious tactics the school used to implement the program. They also question the ethics of a monetary deal the school made with the company to test and promote its product, using students as guinea pigs.
    [The article]

    Parents tend to get angry when people start testing things on their children, even if they are harmless RFID devices. I know I'd object!
    PHP Code:
    $s = new signature();
    $s->sarcasm()->intellect()->font('Courier New')->display();
