ROBERT SIEGEL, HOST:
We don't know how common the experience of Robert Collins was but in the age of social media, perhaps it was inevitable. Mr. Collins was a corrections officer in Maryland. He took a leave of absence after his mother died, and then reapplied for his job. And he had to go through a security interview.
During the interview, Mr. Collins was asked a question that he had never been asked before during the process. He was asked for his Facebook username and password. Robert Collins joins us from Towson, Maryland. Welcome to the program.
Spring is a key time for those watching wildfires because snow is melting and exposing dead vegetation. Add in some warm, windy and dry conditions and you get the fire that erupted in Eastern Colorado last weekend, which scorched 37 square miles.
