Not quite the mark of the beast

I can't click on any news link without running into ten things to mock DC over. Seriously.

This bit is about how DC will be implementing an "all purpose ID card" to cover every sort of public service within the district. Here's the gooey inside stuff:
The card would be mandatory for D.C. government employees and public school students, but other citizens could get them, too.
Yaaaaaay! Be the first kid on your block to be entered in the government database!!!
City officials said personal information about the user will not be stored on the card. Instead, the information will be kept in a central database.
Like that's a great place for your sensitive information to be.

"Were government, and we are dedicated to keeping your information secure! Trust us!"
