This Is Freedom Of Information Day!
Today, celebrates and recognizes a valuable concept in American rights.
It's appropriate that we celebrate this day on the birth date of James Madison, 4th president of the United States. He is recognized as the "Father of the Constitution", and the chief author of the "Bill of Rights". Freedom of information and individual rights was very important to him.
The Freedom of Information Act was passed into law in 1966. It opened up a wealth of information to American citizens.
