Dan Metcalfe on the Politicization of Justice...and secrecy

Great new piece out by Cox Newspapers' Rebecca Carr -- a sitdown with Dan Metcalfe, co-founder of the Justice Department's Office of Information and Privacy, which he co-founded in 1981.

Among many interesting points, Dan mentions that he is becoming a professor at American University's Washington College of Law and executive director of a new Center on Government Secrecy being established there next month. This is great news!
