Kevin Drum links to an amusing story in North Carolina's News & Observer about government censorship of "sensitive" materials. The state's Department of Labor recently released to the paper a sheaf of documents a reporter had requested, but many were so thoroughly redacted as to be nigh unintelligble. Except one of the heavily redacted documents was an article that the News & Observer itself had published in 2003—and the author was the same reporter who'd submitted the document request. Among the redacted words: Mexicans, illegally, several workers, landlord, and tomato pickers. The labor department says it "will probably review its policies on what information is private."
