I have been targeted because I shopped at Target and made credit card purchases ("Why hackers keep winning," Dec. 20). Sadly, this is just the tip of the proverbial iceberg.
If this is a glimpse into our future, I want nothing to do with it. I...

I am getting giddy with delight. The word's out. This has been the worst-kept secret in our fine state.
