Taking it to the limit, if not now, then when?

There is a limit on governmental transparency.

It is ethically defensible.

We are not yet there, but we will get there.

Which begs a question;

Why not by the close of business on the first day
of the next legislative session?

As opposed to the last day. Or worse, as opposed to
not getting around to it ever.
When the question is will you tell the truth,
the answer must be yes, and it must be immediate.

Anything else means, no.

It means no, and politicians and public servants do not get to answer that question with any response that means "no".

Not unless we let them.
