Weather continues to be beautiful and everything is still in bloom all around here. Truly lovely.

US Government about to come out with new driling rules

What's the latest on Net Neutrality?

I was reading about banned books yesterday. Didn't realize it's Banned Books Week!

Fort Hood has seen a rash of suicides.

Watchdog role shifting to citizens

Traditional media, such as newspapers, magazines and television, have historically served as public watchdogs, monitoring government activities to curb abuse, and going to court when government balked at supplying the documents it was supposed to. Petersen sees that mantle shifting somewhat as the media cut back coverage in answer to shrinking profits.

Pursuing government records transgressions may fall more to citizen activist groups and so-called gadflies. That may not be such a big shift. Many a newspaper expose has started with a tip or a document from an individual. At least in Florida, every citizen has the same right of access as the media.

Interesting privacy case regarding public information in the hands of a government agency about a private corporation (AT&T)

AT&T wants the FCC to keep secret all the information it gathered from the company during an investigation into its participation in the federal E-Rate program, which helps schools and libraries get Internet access.

The FCC had released some of the information under an open records request, but withheld some, citing FOIA exemptions that cover trade secrets and humans' right to privacy.
