slipping through the cracks

Funny how the mind might skip over whistleblower Edward Snowden's actions and revelations about government snooping on citizen privacy and yet be outraged and astounded at the incompetent carelessness of The Gap when, instead of delivering a tie and pocket square a man had ordered, the company shipped him "the confidential files of about 20 former employees, including Social Security numbers and W4 tax forms."

In the latter instance, people may be outraged at the stupidity and intrusiveness.

In the former case, well, it needs to be parsed and examined and balanced ... no instantaneous yowl of outrage or fear and hang-the-bastards-out-to-dry!

The government, of course, has our best interests at heart.

Sorta like The Gap, I imagine.
