You know when the car salesman says, “Yep, that’s the last one we have in inventory and I have a couple coming to look at it in a half hour,” and you just know he’s selling you. Well, he’s a car salesman, and therefore, more trustworthy than me. But here’s the odd thing – I’m [...]

Two items in yesterday’s bloggage make an interesting contrast in the state of credit. Salon reports on the news that Equifax, one of the big three credit agencies, has salary data and employment records of a third of American adults and readily – and legally – sells that data.
