L.A. Hospital Gives Away Your Info to Protect President

If this isn't one great example of a total breakdown of privacy rights in the United States then... I know I can find a dozen more! This "Notice of Privacy Practices" from Cedars-Sinai hospital in L.A. shows how you agree to give up your personal information for the listed reasons. One says "For protective services for the President and others." and another extremely disturbing reason, "To list you in our directory so we can respond to people asking for you by name." How is this OK at all?

Thanks to the good peeps over at Boing Boing for gettin' this out into the public view!
