Census Form Arrived Today

The Census form arrived in the mail today. Every ten years the federal government is constitutionally mandated to count the number of people in this country. That's fine.

The Constitution does not require the government to collect my name, age, birthdate, race, and whether I own, rent, or squat in my residence on April 1, 2010.

The only question I am answering is the number of people at my address.

Interestingly enough, the letter accompanying the census form states that my answers cannot be used in court. I assume that applies to blank answers, too. For most of the census form, "blank" is my answer.
