What it comes down to is a collection of patients’ names with a list of their family, friends and contacts. By the time it can be organized and staffed, what will be the use of that?

Those protesting Texans and others are concerned that this after-the-fact and costly project amounts to little more than setting up an informant network, one that tempts political misuse in future, especially when added to proliferating public facial recognition cameras and the growing tracking of cell phones and vehicles. In China, all of these are applied to controlling citizens so it seems understandable that some Americans are worried. Whether or not one decides to worry, it is probably a good idea to seriously consider the scene; if you are a taxpayer, you are funding it …
