This 60 minutes report was such horrible fear mongering. Showing video of tracking software with boxes floating over peoples faces as they walk through airports! I completely agree with Deb and JoAnne. What is this "danger" they kept referring to? I was hearing alot of "the sky is falling" but very little actual information. They finally got to the point and said that if the US wants to be a leader in genetic science and medicine, we need to invest in it more than we are. Yup.

I already had my DNA taken by my doctor, which is now in a database. I am not allowed to access it. At least with the genetic genealogy testing sites I can do something with it. And I am not worried that the genes for my hazel eyes might be copied into a designer baby someday.
