Go tell it on the mountain: “Information will not destroy your life”

I very much love this column in the South Town Star by Phil Kadner:

Information will not destroy your life.

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.
