Here's another item on the ever-growing list of instances where the Bush administration simply stopped publishing an inconvenient fact rather than address (or even admit to) the problem the fact points to.
This time the topic is oil drilling in the Gulf of Mexico.
The idea that the head of the most secretive and distrustful administration in American history is gearing up to build a half-billion dollar library named after himself is, at times, a lot to work one's mind around. Many wags have predicted that the building will house a copy of The Pet Goat and that's about it. My guess is that it will store all these no-longer-public reports and accountings--and that no one will be allowed to check anything out.
