Privacy, get over it!

Larry "Dudley" Hiibel has lost his privacy case in the U.S. Supreme Court. In a 5-4 decision, the Justices ruled that individuals are required to show identification to law enforcement when asked, apparently agreeing with the State of Nevada's contention that individuals in our modern society do not have the right to keep their name private. Writing for the majority, Justice Anthony Kennedy said, "Answering a request to disclose a name is likely to be so insignificant in the scheme of things as to be incriminating only in unusual circumstances."
