Journalists need access to public records...
The Lexington Herald found a fugitive the cops couldn't track using public records databases. This is a wonderful example why journalists need access to public records and why closing records because of privacy concerns is not necessarily in the best interest of the public.
Kudos to Liz for bringing it to our attention.

The Birmingham News found, via public records, that a state legislator used state money to pave the dirt road leading to a subdivision he and his wife were developing.
