There is no question that it needs to be done. However, it’s vitally important that local, state and federal government agencies avoid calls to fund this massive effort through so-called Public/Private Partnerships (PPPs).

Now, the “smart” street lights that record conversations and broadcast government propaganda are actually being rolled out on city streets across America. <More>
