Danny Glover of National Journal reports that the DOI’s Chief Information Officer, W. Hord Tipton, said this in a speech yesterday morning:
“Blogs just scare the pants off me, particularly when Interior people want to launch blogs and take ownership of those types of things.” he said. “We don’t allow people to go to blogs unless we know where they are, who they are and what have you.”
Whoo-ee! Prepare to live without trousers, Mr. Tipton!

According to Danny, Mr. Tipton also referred to Sean’s “Banned at DOI” logo (see above) in his speech. Congratulations, Sean! You got their attention!
There are a lot of people out there who should be scared of blogs. Information has escaped from the control of the Anointed. The results do not always reflect well on people who are used to being shielded from public scrutiny.
Mr. Tipton may be pantsless, but the Emperor is Naked.
