Government in the Sunshine: Revisited

I've said it before and I'll say it again, press coverage of Senate careers isn't much to yap about--compared to gubernatorial coverage. I scoured the Washington Post for even the thinnest articles on the Chiles years (1970-1988). I came up with very little for his first term. I still have some archival research to do, but the events leading up to passage of the Government in the Sunshine Act in 1975 will need to be fleshed out with interviews mostly I think.

Tomorrow, I'll go through my entire binder of first term news clips, pull quotes, start a new Word document called "Government in the Sunshine Draft 3," and build on the six pages I already have down. That's the routine.
