California Bill Would Require Bluring of Churches, Schools, and Hospitals in Satellite Pictures

A legislator in California is introducing a bill that would require Google, Microsoft, and other satellite image providers to blur out schools, hospitals, and government buildings among others.  These could be terrorist targets, even though many of the same entities occupying these buildings put up address, directions, and other how to find us information.  Any terrorist who has the skill to use Google Maps can figure this out.  Why not ban GPS systems if that's the case?  If we can't stop the terrorists, we can at least confuse them with our arcane street layouts an no GPS help.  What, you say?  That would deprive all of non-terrorists of GPS benefits?  A small price to pay to defeat terrorism.  In fact, an even better solution would be to stop using churches, schools, and hospitals.  It would diminish their importance as potential terrorist targets.  Did California think of that one yet?  [MG]
