Some time ago, Wells Fargo Bank's data processing subsidiary thought it totally
reasonable to perform credit checks on potential employees. And that makes a
certain amount of sense to me.

Drug testing has its pluses and minuses. One major flaw current tests have is
that eating a poppy seed muffin within 24 hours before the test will produce
false positives. And I happen to like poppy seed muffins and bagels. <sigh> So
much for our winning government contracts. (NOT!)
