Comment Re:Aren't they available through FOIA? (Score 1) 145

Do you really want your tax records (which are, after all, government records) available freely on the Internet? Do you want them available from a FOIA request? Just because something is a "government record" does not ipso facto make it appropriate for release -- free or otherwise. To further muddy the waters, the Judiciary is not subject to FOIA (though they may well comply with FOIA requests). That includes the judges, the various court administrations in each district and circuit as well as the Administrative Office in DC.

All power corrupts, but we need electricity.
