Reader comment roundup: Praise for small-biz mentors, advice on online privacy and more

Regarding "Official urges less reliance on contractors": Mr. Levine has hit the nail on the head. A contractor's job is to make money for his company.  A civil servant's job is to serve the taxpayer!

Regarding "DOD reassures users about privacy": Anyone who uses a government computer and thinks they have a shred of privacy is foolish.  There's no way to provide that privacy as network traffic and records repositories can be viewed at many levels by many people. Always create e-mails as if a stranger is standing over your shoulder.

Regarding "State, local agencies may get more access to GSA contracts" State and local agencies can already use Schedule 84 to purchase items for "disaster recovery," in advance of any disaster.
How will this legislation broaden their access to this schedule?
