We all know that our American telephone companies turned over our call records to the FBI, and that Congress has made them immune to lawsuits over it. What's surprising is how little it took to persuade the phone companies to share their records. Subpoenas? Court orders? Warrants? Bah. Post-It notes and phone calls were enough. The phone companies even put employees in FBI offices to help with the paperwork (when anyone bothered with paperwork).

We may as well let the government "host" our call records. It'd save time. And paper.
