Over Your Head

From those of you who don’t know, Google is making satellite imagery of your house and mine available gratis on line. Here’s an an example I picked — 8500 Sunset Blvd. — right in the middle of the Sunset Strip. It’s fascinating to look at, but a little unnerving. It wasn’t that long ago you would have to pay a fortune for something like this – or be a member of the CIA or the KGB. I don’t want to think about the implications.
