However this is a real juicy one. The local Red Cross chapter here is requiring active volunteers to submit to credit checks (!) in order to continue, and nearly a quarter of them have quit rather than submit their Social Security number and agree to a credit check.
My favorite quote from the article:
"Since Sept. 11, things have changed in the world," Howes said. "We are in the business of being prepared, and this is about being prepared."
