More laptops???

A statement from the FTC was released yesterday. Yet another government laptop was stolen that contains "personally identifiable information". From a car--the laptop was stolen from a car! Of course the statement mentions that it was a locked car, but I really wonder if the genious left the laptop in plain view.

Once again, when are people going to learn to make use of available solutions that keep private information off of the local hard drive. A simple VPN with a file server or some such application would fix this problem.
