Travelography #27: Airline Identity Theft Threat, and a Titanic Death

This is a PCN Travelography Podcast related post (click on the title above to go to the PCN TRAVELOGRAPHY web page)

Only two stories in today's Travelography. The first, and main story, discusses a Guardian (UK) newspaper story about how easy it was to obtain identity information on a passenger from a discarded ticket stub, and how this relates to the structural problem of having private companies (airlines) collect this information for governments. The second story is about the death of the last survivor of the Titanic who was old enough to remember the ship's sinking.
