The Trump Administration is quietly limiting access to public information, especially as it relates to ethics and enforcement. We can no longer view disclosures about workplace violations, energy efficiency, or animal welfare abuses.
Going further, Trump officials have removed entire websites run by the EPA and Interior Departments about climate change. Going further still, EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt on Friday failed to renew the second terms of several scientists on the EPA's Board of Scientific Counselors.
If all this makes you want to scream and swear, you're not alone. The good news is swearing can be a form of pain management, maybe even empowerment.
Lastly, president Trump is expected to nominate Callista Gingrich to be ambassador to the Vatican.
