Controlling Your History ...



Jack Barrett has a fascinating article in the Village Voice about Rudy Guiliani's seizure of all city records produced during his administration as mayor of New York City. Stored in a high security facility in Long Island City, the records include all documents related to the Guiliani administration's response to the World Trade Center disaster. All of the records are public property, but the sweetheart contract negotiated with his appointed city records commissioner to put the records in a facility that Guiliani controls provides few safeguards of the public interest. Thanks to Jonathan Rees for the tip.
