Government in the Dark

Not too long ago I watched All The President's Men again. It got me thinking about the Government in the Sunshine Act like never before. I always admired the use of lighting in the film--or lack thereof I should say.

Instead of white light all you get is weird blues mostly. A not-too-subtle hint that corruption thrives in the dark.

Interesting to discover more and more that it was Watergate that broke the back of the opposition to Senator Chiles' "Sunshine" measure, after years of advocacy.
