I’m really enormously proud of my brother’s work in Maine.
Newspaper reporters are an important check on attempted abuses of power by government and industry leaders. Compared to many parts of the world the US has relatively low corruption, which is a huge economic boon. In my opinion, the decline of American newspapers are a threat to that advantage.
And this: “I wouldn’t say that I was overly concerned about being found in contempt of court and being jailed up to 30 days by Maine’s court rules. But I did arrange for a friend to take care of my dogs just in case.” 🙂
