re: The Freedom From Information Act
While I don't find this surprising, the extent to which the government redacted all relevant information is disheartening and severely limits a journalist's ability to serve as a government watchdog. I understand that this is a legal matter and that it occurs between Microsoft and Google (and not the government), but wouldn't the dispute between these two companies be of specific pubic concern, especially provided Google's strong position in the market? That being said, your headline seems to be quite appropriate.

re: The Freedom From Information Act
Tom,
The inquiry and response dates alone tell us that government isn't working. Perhaps if they spent less time redacting, they would have more time to respond to inquiries in a timely fashion! I'm guessing it's fear of getting sued by either Microsoft or Google that has the bureacrats covering their butts by redacting everything remotely interesting.
