VA Update: As discussed below
, the VA had an ugly data breach that brought out the plaintiff lawyer vultures but ultimately was a non-issue. A laptop was stolen, but the was recovered and the information was not used improperly. However, the VA has decided to take action
to prevent even the scare from happening again: they're going to encrypt all data on laptops. (Hat tip: Robert Q. Wilson).
