I read this and laughed out loud.

 

A newspaper reporter from the St. Louis Post-Dispatch discovered sensitive data embedded in the HTML code of a website run by Missouri's dept of education. In response, Missouri's Governor accused the newspaper of illegal hacking.

A newspaper informed Missouri about a website flaw. The governor accused it of ‘hacking.’

The most laughable part of the story was it costing up to $50million to fix the problem, get in there quick guys you could undercut and still make a clear $25 million.......great saving for the state of Missouri!

 

As I keep saying this is where we are at now, frightening.

Rep. Tony Lovasco, who has worked in software deployment and maintenance, tweeted Thursday that “it’s clear the Governor’s Office has a fundamental misunderstanding of both web technology and industry standard procedures for reporting security vulnerabilities.

 

“Journalists responsibly sounding an alarm on data privacy is not criminal hacking,” he said.

Well I don't know what is going on but I've never experienced in my life-time what is happening right now, the whole World seems to be on the brink, imploding in one way or another.

I fear "Idiocracy," a sci-fi comedy movie from 2006, was more fact than fiction.
