READER’S EDITORIAL: IS THERE EVEN A BOUNDARY ANYMORE?


(Note: This reader asked to have her name withheld, for fear of government retribution.)
 
February 3, 2012 (San Diego’s East County)--A woman came to my door today from the U.S. Department of Commerce, U.S. Census Bureau, because I had not returned the American Community Survey. Honestly, I don't remember receiving it.
 
She handed me a much used paper which said we are required by law to answer, and threatened fines up to a $5,000 if we do not comply.
