I am always amazed that there is any arguement for consumer privacy – I always wonder what I am buying at the supermarket that I want to keep hidden. Frozen food? Cheetos? Abnormal amounts of brocoli?

People give up such privacy for a pittance because it is not worth a pittance to them. At one time people feared being photographed. Now, you can go to numerous websites and see more of people than perhaps you should want to.

Just perfect for the Sophisticated Investor. I personally like the bedroom/bathroom ratio. Not counting the pools, of course.
