Does that include the light pollution put off by the streetlamps themselves?

They'll have to, at least, account for it.

As to the cell phone traffic, I carry two phones. Am I two people? or do they know both are mine? Can't they just get this from the NSA? We pay for that data collection, it's OURS. We should be able to use it.

They already do have a bunch of police cameras attached to telephone poles.  Just hasn't made a difference.

He who is subjected to a field of visibility, and who knows it, assumes responsibility for the constraints of power; he makes them play spontaneously upon himself; he inscribes in himself the power relation in which he simultaneously plays both roles; he becomes the principle of his own subjection.

Actually, it's the Emanuel corporation...at least it wasn't Daleyco.   (A company that sells parking meters that claim to last 75 years, but crap out
after less than three.)

At least a couple of us acknowledge getting the headline.   Never knew there were so many people who were puppet enthusiasts.
