Baltimore Story of Open Gov't Workaround

This interesting story, sent to us by one of the AP's finest reporters, describes how a reporter had to use "workarounds" to get information from the Baltimore police ... and how those workarounds are not working any more.

This story is interesting because it shows the struggle, and the stakes, of open government and how much harder it's getting out there.
