SEPTEMBER 2002

"The OMB just doesn't seem to take seriously the public's right to know, the public's need to know, and the public's right to expect the government they're paying for to share whatever knowledge it has gathered that might support the enhancement of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. This cavalier attitude toward information policymaking threatens to lead, fairly quickly, to a collapse of the flow of federal government information to the public. About the last thing this country needs right now is an upsurge of ignorance. Americans do not need to get dumber about their government or anything else." -- Barbara Quint, Information Today, Vol. 19, Issue 8, September 2002.
