Blind-Copying on E-Mails

NPR's Jennifer Ludden is joined by Randy Cohen, who writes The Ethicist column in The New York Times magazine. A listener is concerned about the ethics of using the bcc or "blind copy" function of e-mail. She asks: is it ever acceptable to keep some of your correspondents in the dark about who's in on the conversation?
