As most of you know by reading Bordertown Blues, the LareDOS monthly newspaper is out. They featured this interesting photo essay of scattered documents, cardboard and all kinds of stuff in bundles that were not really in their bundles anymore.
I had actually taken photos of this warehouse on Calton Road LAST YEAR (Feb. 2010) when I wanted to write about fire hazards (never got around to it). What this means is that in ALL of this past year, they have been just sitting there, getting wet, getting frozen, getting burnt by the Laredo sun, getting worse and worse until you get the above pictures. What surprised me the most about the LareDOS find was the UISD boxes – uh, isn’t carelessness what has LISD searching for CDs with social security number data? Or does UISD have the same attitude the LISD Board president does as quoted in the Texas Tribune’s story:
Beckelhymer also added that, while he doesn’t like “sharing” Social Security numbers, he doesn’t think the fact that they’re missing is “a big deal.”
Yep, I still think its a fire hazard.
