Flying or Buying, they both want your credit records

According to numerous articles on Friday, including this article on Fox News, Delta Airlines is preparing a trial run of a new federal program for security.

This latest program involves consulting a database that includes many sources of data, including credit reports... that's right credit reports! Why, you may ask, does the government care about whether I pay my bills on time? We're not quite sure, but apparently it is related to the profiling techniques that they use.

Watch for more fun as the three cities that Delta will be starting with expand to all airports by the end of the year.
