“Would you buy a national ID tag from this man?
By David Whitford
If you’re drinking with Steve Brill, have whatever you want, but he’s drinking Tab. He starts right in first thing in the morning (“I don’t drink coffee”), downing a six-pack in a typical workday. Not Diet Coke, not Diet Pepsi?Tab. “Because it’s tougher,” he says, lifting a pink, dented can to his lips in his corner office at Rockefeller Center. “It’s not sweet. It’s really bracing.””
– I wouldn’t take a national ID card from anyone. It is totally un-American. I even hate having a Social Security Number. My card is so old it even says it is not to be used for identification purposes, the new ones no longer say that. I don’t like bashing new business ideas but the only way this will even take off is if the government supports it and why would I want this man to have my information. He doesn’t sound like a member of the ACLU to me so he should get out if he’s pretending to believe in what they represent. -ed.
