Sunshine Breakfast Editorialized (There's a Moral to This Story)

This Seattle Times editorial describes this morning's Washington Coalition for Open Government awards breakfast and, more importantly, the accomplishments of the award winners.

Note to government officials contemplating getting away with open-government violations: The largest newspaper in the state cares so much about open government that it writes an editorial about a breakfast. Factor that into your calculations about whether there will be any blow back from an open-government violation.
