The Hum of the Hovercraft

In yesterday's post, I mentioned the 24 / 7 video cameras in "The Hunger Games."

Tonight, I read this in the Sunday's Star Tribune:

"All of the pieces appear to be lining up for the eventual introduction of routine aerial surveillance in American life - a development that would probably change the character of public life in the United States."

The quotation is from the American Civil Liberties Union, in a paper on unmanned drones published last year. The tile was "Protecting Privacy From Aerial Surveillance."

In "The Hunger Games," it is unclear whether the hovercraft are manned. But they are always ominous.
