Bellingham Herald Editorial on the (Ridiculous) Pipeline Case

The Bellingham Herald editorializes on the pipeline case. They (correctly) note:

"Citizens just continue to lose in Washington. The attitude of some bureaucrats, legislators and some in the court system is that they know best and that citizens should just take their word for it. That is not how it is supposed to work. Citizens pay for government. The information government collects is for the citizens. But the clouds of government secrecy get darker every year."
