Occasionally, I will mention my job, my public service activities, and other aspects of my life to offer my readers a better perspective on where I'm coming from. But to be clear:
"The views that I express represent my own opinions, based on my own education and experience, not the opinions of any other entity, party, or group to which I belong. I give these opinions in my individual capacity, as a private citizen, and as someone who gives a good gosh darn about his community, his country, and the truth."
In other words: my blog, my words, my point of view. Enjoy!
Against It Before He Was for It: Rounds Inaugurates Open Government Website
Good morning, open government! Governor Rounds has inaugurated Open.SD.Gov, the very sort of government records website that Governor Rounds told the Legislature was "unworkable and too costly" last March. (Clever politics: fight someone else's good idea, then slap your own name on it.) Already over 3000 hits—so enjoy this rainy weekend perusing your public records!
