A friend of a friend was standing in front of me, and she had a big piece of confetti on her coat,’ paradegoer Ethan Finkelstein told the Post.  ‘She saw it had something on it, and we read it said SSN, like Social Security number.  We started picking all the confetti up, and it had all kinds of stuff—birth dates, addresses, account information.’  The Tufts freshman added:  ‘At first I thought it might be documents from Macy’s employees until I saw that there were detectives’ names and information about crimes in there.  This is really shocking!’

“This isn’t the first time important documents have made their way into a ticker tape parade:  last February, sensitive documents that included people’s social security numbers were among the pieces of papers being thrown around during the parade for the Super Bowl XLVI Championship Giants.”
