AGs Defend Newspaper Notices

The Treasury’s celebrated TARP program to rescue troubled mortgages still hasn’t really kicked in. Treasury is being beaten up by Congress for not starting it.

Water, Water everywhere and no one watching

These Texas residents are upset about the water use in the recovery of an old mine. But the notice was in the paper, 4 times no less. These folks are treading water. They would have been informed if they had been reading. http://www.cameronherald.com/articles/2008/11/23/news/news03.txt

The candidates themselves, of course, usually feel their privacy has been invaded. But their financial lives are a piece of their suitability for office. Publishing foreclosure notices, as well as writing about them in […]

It would be great to think someone in the circulation department at this newspaper would have contacted this guy about subscribing, but somehow one suspects it won’t happen.

TMI Strikes City Website

TMI (Too Much Information) shows that the web can both overreport and underreport, but in any event the ease of the single keystroke puts the whole information stream in peril.  Here, a lot of personal information accidentally wound up on the web. http://www.indystar.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20081016/LOCAL18/810160473/1195/LOCAL18#
