Thanks for reviewing this material so I didn't have to. Maybe they want to horn in on the NY Times and ACLU's profits from the "your privacy / civil rights are at risk" narrative. But their hauteur hasn't gelled yet.

You know what else these tools are going to be good for? Background eye-candy for creepy paranoid survivalist "New World Order" scare videos. I can just see a slow pan over the "classified facilities" map, with all those big bright red spots popping up, and ominous music playing, and then a slow zoom onto...YOUR OWN HOMETOWN, DUN dun DANAAAAAAA!

If there’s no big story to write, and the database puts readers to sleep, why did the Post spend scarce resources on these things at a time when newspapers are in desperate shape?
