Here's an old piece of paranoia revisited…?

Those evil Canadians spying on our defense contractors by putting microphones in coins.

This story makes no sense. What if they spend the coins?

This is a repeat of a story that happened during the cold war, and it made no sense then either.

I think the idea is to make people think the world is spying on the poor little US of A. Like we don’t spy on them…

Actually, if you take about ten seconds to think about it, the whole thing is pretty amusing. It must cost quite a bit to manufacture the microcomponents for such devices. But the device gets transferred into some cash register as part of less than a dollar purchase.

‘Intelligence?’ Now there’s a funny word.

No question here, sorry. Just an observation.
