Loose lips sink ships

Via a faithful reader, this story ("Purcellville Council To Vote On Employee Gag Order," 12/4) from the Leesburg paper says one Virginia town is weighing a new policy whereby no Town employees would be allowed to talk to reporters until after next May's municipal elections.

Most of the article involved quotes from local government officials and lawyers, all scratching their heads and saying, no, we've never heard of anything quite like that.
