Good day fellow zobopians. Yes, that’s what I’m calling you all now, ‘zobopians’. It has a nice ring to it. Today’s thought is; Who watches the watchers?

Cameras aren’t the only surveillance devices spreading in our cities. Around the country, (and world), police departments are using devices with sound pickup. The microphone devices can pinpoint bursts of gunfire and also the sound of human voices.

If you want to live in a transparent society, we must answer the question:
Will average citizens share, along with the powers that be, the right to access these universal monitors? Will common folk have, and exercise, a sovereign power to “watch the watchers”?
