Big Brother Isn't Watching You

Folks inclined to feelings of paranoia at the thought of having their every move detected by Big Brother should consider the case of Brandi Stahr.

Seven years ago, after a dispute with her mother over poor college grades, Stahr went missing and had not been heard from since. Then, a few days ago, the Texas native was discovered to be living and working in the Cincinnati-area community of Florence, Kentucky. She had made no attempt to conceal her identity and used her own name and Social Security number for her work at a Sam's Club there.

Federal law prohibits law enforcement agencies from getting hold of people's tax information.

So, Big Brother isn't watching you after all.
