"We are a democracy, and there is only one way to get a democracy on its feet
in the matter of its individual, its social, its municipal, its State, its
National conduct, and that is by keeping the public informed about what is
going on.  There is not a crime, there is not a dodge, there is not a trick,
there is not a swindle, there is not a vice which does not live by secrecy.
Get these things out in the open, describe them, attack them, ridicule them in
the press, and sooner or later public opinion will sweep them away.

Publicity may not be the only thing that is needed, but it is the one thing
without which all other agencies will fail."
-Joseph Pulitzer (Power, Inc., Pg 62)

Let's hope that he is right.
