Secure and private browsing with Squid

Browsing a site that supports SSL is a definite way to make sure no one can snoop in on what you're doing -- which is a good thing when you're doing something personal like checking email over the web or buying something from amazon. But if you're just doing stuff like reading the daily news or checking movie times, is privacy that important? The ultra-paranoid will give a resounding "yes" to that question while most people will just shrug. I find myself in between those two parties. At home while I'm reading the news, I could care less if the traffic is encrypted or not. However, when I'm at a public wi-fi spot, it does bother me a bit.
