Don’t Lie to Our ATM, Comrade…

In a New York Times story, awakening fond memories of the Cold War, Russia's largest retail bank is experimenting with an ATM that incorporates a lie detector.  This would be a target-rich environment for jokes if the implications weren't so serious.  Nevertheless, I expect we'll see cartoons about this in our weekend newspapers.

Meanwhile, from the, "we just don't get it", department:

“We are not violating a client’s privacy,” he said. “We are not climbing into the client’s brain. We aren’t invading their personal lives. We are just trying to find out if they are telling the truth. I don’t see any reason to be alarmed.”

Yeah…what could possibly go wrong???
