Throwback Thursday

news id

Here’s my Indianapolis News company ID badge from the 1980s.

My Social Security Number is, of course, redacted.

We all thought ID badges were stupid. Some security company convinced upper management that our open door policy – anyone could walk in off the street and take the elevator up to the second floor and The Indianapolis News City Room – put us in serious peril.

Never mind that we never had a serious incident in all the time I worked there.

Whatever. Now they have the rather expensive illusion of security.
