Watching the spiraling price of gold (the spot price as of this writing is $1,213.40/oz) has been a humbling experience for me.

Security Issues with the US government

Some people, I have noticed, have been skeptical about the amount of care taken by the US government and agencies in the last few years. Companies are also catching up. The security measures change every year, when not every semester, every month and for some, probably every day.
