camera.jpgMother Jones has made the point that there are quite a few surveillance cameras watching Americans. But Americans have it good compared to Britons: The UK has one surveillance camera for every 14 citizens. Now, the cameras are going to get voice hookups, so they will be able to scold you if you litter or pick your nose. (Like, why are you watching me if you don't want to see me pick my nose?) Human observers will be making the commentary, so perhaps it will also include catcalls. Ay, mamita, I can't wait.
