    The headline is whack. The court can’t rule that government emails “should be” public. It can only offer an opinion that they are or aren’t. This is another reason why we can’t have nice things.

    I agree with the decision, tho.Report

    Duh. Just mandate that all gov’t business be done on gov’t property. Have two phones. Deal.Report

  5. From the article, it seems like the type of thing I’d agree with, as long as it doesn’t lead to a situation where accidentally talking about government business on one’s personal email leads to the public’s “right” to read everything on one’s personal email account.Report
