You never know who's watching

I saw this story this morning and was reminded that it's probably a good idea to always be on your best behavior, especially in a day and age when surveillance video solutions are becoming more and more widespread. Public building perimeters, private business perimeters, parking lots, street intersections, concerned private citizens... you never know when you'll be the unwitting star of captured video. I blogged last week on courtesy and how we could all benefit from a little more gratitude and a more polite approach, and now I guess I'm saying that maybe if we all acted on our best behavior at all times, acted as though we were being observed--whether by our ancestors, by God, by Karma, by surveillance infrastructure, or by a concerned tourist is up to you--maybe everyone would come out ahead.
