	Here is one of those "Wow! Mr. Science" news items that makes
those of us not employed in the computer industry wonder if we can really
trust the high-tech establishment.--Rich Lague

"How to Scan a Cat."  NY Times Magazine, 16 January, p. 11.
  Some companies have developed microchips which can be
  injected underneath the skin and read by a scanner.
  Currently the chips are being used to tag salmon "in a
  Federal wildlife program known as fish and chips."  Future
  uses could include tagging children or implanting credit
  cards so they would not be lost.
