Expensive Wrapping

The call newspaper fishwrap. But what do you wrap newspapers in? If you're the Boston Globe, it appears you wrap it in you customers' private financial data. 240,000 credit card numbers and 1,100 check routing codes went out to 2000 retailers and 390 paper carriers totalling 9,000 bundles of inappropriate bundle wrapping.

The mind boggles.

It's hard to imagine trusting your financial data to these jokers in future. Perhaps paying in cash will be making a minor comeback?
