If you've ever used an SS5 - the application for a Social Security card - to find out the identities of the parents of the applicant, you need to read Megan Smolenyak's post here.

Unless the applicant was born at least 100 years ago, the SSA is going to black out the names of his/her parents, for privacy reasons. However, if you can prove the parents are dead, you're good to go.

And if you could do that, you wouldn't want to see what the names were on the SS5, now would you?

I mean a parent who was born 118, 125, or more years ago is entitled to his/her privacy, right?

Can our government get any lamer? Wonder which 140 year old parent complained?

Bureaucrats are bureaucrats. State of NY won't release birth certificates until 50 years after the person's death. Supposedly to prevent identity theft. hah.
