I heard that the data was being collected to ID hoarders.  Of course this
was back when many thought Y2K was going to be TEOTWAWKI...

Then I heard a story about Sam's Clubs requiring ID when purchasing certain
over the counter medicines that could be used in making meth, Alka-Seltzer
for one...

Don't know what their up to, but my card is registered to a fake name
living at the public library...
