then i remembered the census lady was by back in November shortly before all this started.
All Things Considered, July 31, 2006 · Two-and-a-half years from now, in early 2009, the Census Bureau plans to send an army of 100,000 temporary workers down every street and dusty, dirt road in America. They will be armed with handheld GPS devices.
Robert LaMacchia, head of the Census Bureau's geography division, says they'll capture the latitude and longitude of the front door of every house, apartment and improvised shelter they find.
"We will actually knock on doors and look for hidden housing units," he says. "We will find converted garages; from the outside, it may not look like anybody lives there."
But census workers will add each dwelling, legal or not, to the Census Bureau's Master Address File.
The article goes on to say the information won't be released outside the census bureau...
As she was about to leave she asked if i knew the whereabouts of a nearby address and fiddled with her laptop..
Small world, that address she asked about is the one my mail goes to now.
Hmm..... homeland security thinks i live around the corner?
