Previously: [REDACTED], Behind the Thick Black Line

Apparently the Justice Department has solved the problem of censoring too much in the name of “national security”. From last week’s New Yorker:

However, the government has made some changesi n the way it goes about marking up documents. “We’re finding that in other cases the censors are apparently realizing that it looks really bad when they delete large sections with that black Magic Marker,” the ACLU’s [lawyer on the case, Ann] Beeson said. “So now they are starting to use whiteout instead.”

Great, wait until the white out is really dry and brittle, and flake it off. ;-)
