"We can only imagine what sleazy or illegal things our government has been up to that have been covered up. Soon, people may reject the those who would censor WikiLeaks. Many people do want to size up what’s going on inside their government in their name and with their tax dollars. Wasn’t it Jefferson who said that 'information is the currency of democracy' and that, given a choice between government and a free press, he’ll take the latter? Secrecy — keeping the people and Congress in the dark — is the cancer eating at the vitals of democracy." (12/24/10)
