Letter: P-R-I-V-A-C-Y

Regarding "Privacy Act II" (FCW.com, July 25): The experts in the article know but apparently didn't say that the Privacy Act or any other associated law or policy is only as strong as the mindset of those implementing and enforcing it.


It is clear the current administration cannot spell privacy and certainly has done nothing to promote it. Rather, at every turn, it has been more of a what can we get away with -- what does the law not expressly prohibit?  Never did I hear nor was I asked, what should we do, what is the right thing to do, how can we promote this better?


It'll be interesting to see how the next administration handles privacy.
