Opinion from Democrat and Chronicle:

In an era when time-pressed technophiles have groceries delivered to their doors and buy tickets en route to the cinema with ubiquitous sidekick gadgets, the meaning of convenience is rewritten daily.

For democracy’s sake, however, government bodies can no longer conflate a convenience with a right. There should be no confusion about public access to information.

Sunshine Week dawns today, and there are both challenges and progress to consider. As always, pressure from an engaged populace — more than what now exists — can be a bullish motivator for reform.
