Opinion from Herald Zeitung:

Every year, the American public’s right to know is marked with Sunshine Week. This year’s observance begins Sunday and runs through March 16.

Newspapers, which campaign incessantly for open government and freedom of information, will take the opportunity next week to remind readers and public officials of the laws that demand transparency in government.
