Bill Cara on whom, exactly, do we require transparency from

[7:18am ET] In our demands for transparency, I am wondering just how far the US government intends to push. They took the right to look at our credit card transactions; they tape all international telephone calls and record all e-mails in and out of the US; and now they demand to know our bank account numbers so they can review our transactions.

But is what’s good for the goose also good for the gander? How much does the public know, for instance, about Queen Pelosi? Do they know, for example, that she works maybe three or four days a week in DC, travelling to and from California in a private 200-seat jet at a weekly fuel cost alone of about $120,000, roughly $6 million a year.
