Putting Pieces Together.
“Individually, public documents don’t contain classified information. But once you gather many documents together they may reveal secrets.” -Clifford Stoll, The Cuckoo’s Egg.
Today I had a conversation with someone that covered a lot of topics. Two things in the conversation came up that, when put together, possibly suggest that something is up in their household: Pregnancy complications and that their daughter has stopped taking Accutane.
Accutane can have some serious side effects and there are plenty of reasons to stop using it; what comes to my mind first of all is that it is contraindicated in pregnancy. That suspicion doesn’t amount to much on its own but with the talk of pregnancies in another part of the conversation, from someone who has never raised the subject with me before, gives that suspicion some weight.
