Subject:   Shrinking Public Info

Dear Colleagues -

Although it is clear that post-September 11 there will be additional
constraints on what information the government makes available on
potentially sensitive subjects, like large-surface public water
supplies, the growth of such restrictions is quite pervasive. Informed
public concern is necessary to maintain a reasonable equilibrium.


This URL details post-September 11 restrictions on public information
that was previously freely online. This quite apart from the
significantly greater restrictions that now attend to requests under
the Freedom of Information Act, which is well on its way to being
gutted. (Re. this, also see one of the items in the above URL.)
