References on left-leaning US blogs to President Bush's proposed changes
to Social Security have been including the term "Soylent Security".

I suspect the reference is to the movie Soylent Green (in which Soylent
Green turns out not to be made of soy and/or lentils but from surplus
humans), rather than to the novel on which it's based, Harry Harrison's
_Make Room!  Make Room!_, which I believe doesn't include this information.
