Here’s an entertaining treat to close out Sunshine Week on the Connecticut Freedom of Information Law Blog.  The video clip is from Stephen Colbert, Comedy Central’s pseudo-conservative President of the United States of Funny.  The Local Open Government Blog summarizes the clip as well as you can in words.

Stephen Colbert presented an editorial on an open government story from Tennessee.  There, a Memphis newspaper has published an on-line database listing people with concealed weapons permits.  Colbert satirically rails against on-line access to public records because of a claimed invasion of privacy.

Enjoy.
