Protest Bush's Nomination of New Archivist
I know: archivist?
But the job of the national archivist is an important one for a democratic society. The archivist preserves our history, including all the pertinent documents of an administration, and makes them available to the public.
So any time Bush asks the current archivist to step down in order to replace him with a handpicked nominee, you have to pause. This is possibly the most secretive presidency the U.S. has ever seen, so it was with great trepidation that I read in The Nation of Bush's latest in a series of tactics meant to stonewall any independent look at his administration and its actions.
If you haven't yet seen this image, you should.
