Enough already. Galveston City Attorney Dorothy Palumbo has made it clear she is no friend to the public’s Constitutionally protected right to know. But the latest example of her disdain for all things related to the First Amendment really does go too far.

The story was about the city’s efforts to develop options for pushing public housing on scattered sites onto the mainland.
