Gag reflex editorial in VND

Editorial, 'Gag Reflex' in Valley News Dispatch, June 19, 2006, p. A6The editorial in the today's Valley News Dispatch follows up on a news story last week about the Allegheny Township supervisors' lifting of a gag order on employees, while deciding that the supervisors themselves will not respond to reporters.

The editorial's conclusion that "this new 'no comment' policy is as silly as the gag order" is understated. Although the overturned policy was likely illegal - and that is a serious matter - the new policy sounds more silly.
