Identity theft is said to be growing wildly
as sleazeballs displaced by cheap and competent
electronic surveillance systems look elsewhere 
to make a dishonest living.

To stop the yahoos from stealing and using credit
card applications, could not the fed simply publish
*everyone's* social security number?  That would
at least stop banks from giving out credit based
on that.  Would it not force them to come up with
some legitimate means of determining identity?
