How Democracies Die

text of _How Democracies Die_ by John H. Stambaugh
"Democracies die behind closed doors. A government operating in the shadow of secrecy stands in complete opposition to the society envisioned by the framers of our Constitution." ~ the 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Cincinnati (source)

This photo was taken at Dan & Louis' Oyster Bar, in Portland, Oregon sometime between Easterday and late July 2004. I highly recommend their New England White Clam Chowder made from the original Wachsmuth family recipe.
