	That is a sound idea, and a good place to start.  I know we have a
few journalists on the list, perhaps they will be able to help define the 
approprate sound bytes.  :)  

How about:  

"You can enhance your privacy by using encryption."

"Governments and Corporations do not respect your Right to reasonable privacy, and
you can protect yourself from many eavesdropping systems with the proper applicaton of 

"With demographics rapidly becoming established as tokens of exchange, value is gleaned
from the observation of online activity and the recording, cross-indexing and exchange
of personal information.  To protect oneself from The Mark of The Beast (j/k) everyone
must adopt the practice of using strong cryptographic systems to secure their interpersonal
communication and mask their actions from outside observers.  We close our blinds and shut
the door when we don't want the neighbours to see us walking around in our birthday suits,
we use envelopes when sending postal mail, we spell out words when we don't want our 
children to know what they are getting for their birthday, and we should use cryptography
in the same way, as a natural part of electronic conversation."

or whatever... I am just trying to get things rolling here.
