For once, I disagree

I am usually among the first to side with privacy rights advocates. However, this recent case is a counterexample. I am glad that we do not have a constitutional right to not tell police officers our names. Imagine how difficult an officer's job would be if you didn't have to tell her your name. Yeah.

Privacy rights advocates have also got to ease up on Google over the Gmail thing. (Note: if Mingle Until Departure curiously appears in Blogger's "Blogs of Note" sidebar ... something's up.)

Interesting caveat - the dissenters in this case were Ginsburg, Souter, Stevens and Breyer. Liberals defending personal freedom - conservatives confirming the expansive powers of the state. Weird.
