  • I have been asked to talk to you about confidentiality in government. I suspect that this is in part because I am one of few who have had the temerity to defend it since Watergate made "secrecy" seem the worst offence against the public good. As Barnum realized in creating his circus, there is a public interest in oddities-from two-headed calves to pig-headed defenders of indefensible propositions. I am such an oddity.
