Government works best when the lights are shining on it, and with the increase in corporate manipulation of our public policy, we need this movement to succeed more than ever. Very often the discussions we have here at BlueNC begin with news that's reported by our local media outlets, who are often stymied by government officials who would release no information at all if they could get away with it. It's a constant struggle, and we owe these folks a pat on the back for engaging in it on a near-daily basis.
