Right on. Wish Katie and others understood these points instead of demonizing a technology that could relieve the Coast Guard tedious search and rescue stresses and the Forest Service to spot fires before they wipe out forests and neighborhoods. What Katie doesn't understand is Big Brother is already here in the form of Little Brother; anyone can buy mini-RVPs with cameras at hobby stores on TV and do the same -- and worst. High school boys literally fly pocket-sized "helicopters" into girls bathrooms now, so getting paranoid over the gov't thinking you're important enough to spend time looking at you is kind of the horse long out of the barn. Support regulated unarmed RVPs for Coast Guard, Border and Forest Services, please!

You are a reality star. You might think no one sees you in your fenced-in backyard grilling hamburgers in your boxer shorts. But government drones equipped with HD cameras are filming a new reality show starring you: “Drone Dynasty.”

In popular reality shows like “Duck Dynasty” and “Keeping Up With the Kardashians,” we essentially stalk people as they make fools of themselves on camera. In general, stalking is becoming culturally acceptable as our ability to spy, share and sensationalize life extends beyond reality television.

I use social media just like everyone else; I think sites like Twitter can...
