The problem isn't that math is hard (or even that so many female non-Danica McKellar fans just go shopping)...

the problem is that the SSN is an *IDENTIFIER*. Not an authenticator.

As long as we do not make it a federal crime to treat knowledge of an SSN as an authenticator, and put actual people in actual jails, we're going to continue to have this problem ad infinitum.
