...which is why I was thrilled to hear on NPR yesterday that California Governor Jerry Brown signed in to law today a decree declaring martial law....

Wait, that was Babylon 5, wasn't it?

Kidding aside: Brown signed into law that it is now illegal for employers to ask for/demand passwords to your Facebook account when you are applying for jobs. Granted, that's (in my opinion) just plain common sense; there's no way I'd ever give something like that away to a prospective employer or even my actual employers. Nice to to know the law is on my side, at last.
I think it's more profound that said law needs to be passed in the first place. It's seems kind of like one of those "well, duh!" things.

If not, potential employers may as well ask for your diary.
