Call me sometime

What does this say about the legitimacy of a leading phone company?

"One of the nation's top political bloggers purchased the cell phone records of former presidential candidate Gen. Wesley Clark on Thursday to demonstrate the growing privacy concerns highlighted in a Chicago Sun-Times story last week.

"John Aravosis, publisher of, said he bought Clark's records for $89.95 from Aravosis said he obtained a list of 100 calls made on Clark's cell phone over three days in November - no questions asked.

"Aravosis, whose liberal blog is critical of the Bush administration, said he called Clark's cell phone Thursday to make sure the former NATO supreme commander was informed Aravosis bought his records. Aravosis did not publish the numbers on his blog."

This development could be bonanza for investigative journalism...or an ominous sign for privacy.
