It’s fairly obvious someone’s head is going to roll for the Dept. of Veterans Affairs foulup. This laptop theft and its implications are horrifying – especially to me, since I’m one of those 26.5 million veterans.
I don’t know how many others in our business can say that, and I don’t care too much. But I’ll tell you this: having just in the last two years started to get my life in order and moving in the right direction, I really don’t need the personal and financial trouble this implies. Never mind it hasn’t happened yet. It just became a lot likelier.
26.5 million. Think about that. That means somewhere between five and ten percent of the U.S. population. Chances are if you’re not one of the people affected, you almost certainly are friends with one.
