Editor Ed Simpson is going to come in second in this dance contest with Chief Kevin Lindsey. The lawyerly Open Records approach is farsical and a waste of energy. Explaining: I'm an old news grubber in this armpit town and to get information to the public about their police department I went about it the old fashioned way, I stole it. I searched for a reliable and discrete insider. When I got the information I allowed the target to answer. Invariably the story took on a life of its own. Simple. I had moles in every city hall, county courthouse, school system, sheriff's office, chamber of commerce and highway patrol. Ethics? No such thing. You're dealing with unethicals to begin with. Best regards, Joplin.
