I very much love this column in the South Town Star by Phil Kadner:
L ooking at government documents that reveal how your tax money is spent will not destroy your life.
Government agencies that want to keep secrets are claiming that a tough new Freedom of Information Act would invade your personal privacy and expose you to identity theft.
Don’t believe it.
When Consolidated High School District 230 refused to release a $135,000 consultant’s report detailing how a construction project went $28 million over budget, that didn’t have anything to do with your privacy.
It goes on from there, getting better and better with each golden word.
