What if someone passed a law that your 25 year old diaries could be made public. I mean your deepest, darkest, most intimate thoughts; or your murderous plots, plans, and machinations. Well that’s what’s happening with our national records; classified records are going to be declassified as of midnight December 31. The academic and trade books that will be written in the next few years, based on this newly released information should prove to be either really interesting or really dull. Regardless, in this current polictial climate, the sudden whoosh of even old information seems like a breath of fresh air.
