On Monday, I was involved in a little fender-bender. No big deal – someone backed into me in a parking lot. The insurance companies were contacted, the minor damage was reported and repaired.
On Wednesday, I received sixteen letters in the mail from personal injury lawyers, all promising to see that I would be well repaid for my physical and emotional trauma. All the letters were personalized, with details about the accident.
It’s comforting to know that there is someone out there ready to benefit from every piece of information available on the internet. Who knows, maybe someday someone will make a heap of money from my music.
But it probably won’t be me.
