"It Sickens Me ..."

Wow. An Ohio news story reports that a records request to an agency in that state produced an email from a government employee saying this about providing public records: "It sickens me to think of the waste and unproductive time being spent in the name of open records and freedom of the press."

Yuck. Open records and freedom of the press. Who needs that? Most countries in the world do just fine without them.
