Knoxville, Tennesssee stolen laptop.  A laptop was stoled from the home of an employee of Blount Memorial Hospital in Knoxville.  The laptop had data of 27,000 patients, including social security numbers for 5,000.  It was password protected, but not encrypted.

Wow, I guess it's not a good idea to have unencrypted patient data on a laptop.  Who'da thought it?
