The case of the missing manuscript
By John Galluzzo / Correspondent
Friday, May 14, 2004
Local history buffs view Bradford work stored in state library
By Shakespeare, through his character Pomonius in King Lear, said it best: "Neither a borrower nor a lender be."
Of course, Shakespeare's works were less than a hundred years old in 1674 when the Bradford House was built in what would later become Kingston. Perhaps that bit of wisdom had not yet quite made it across the Atlantic to work its way into the way of life of the Bradford family.
Whatever the case, the Bradfords lost from their possession one of what is now the state of Massachusetts' prized literary possessions, the Governor William Bradford manuscript for Of Plimoth Plantation. When author Thomas Prince came calling, the Bradford family, in an act of generosity, lent him the manuscript as a primary source for his proposed history of Massachusetts. Prince finished his work, but never returned the book. It remained in his possession until his death.

The Selling of Sarbanes-Oxley
Vendor hype aside, it’s not a new tool category
By Jennifer deJong
May 15, 2004 — The Sarbanes-Oxley act doesn’t say a word about software, but a growing number of vendors are hoping the legislation will help them sell more of it.
Using terms such as “Sarbanes-Oxley accelerator,” they are
bombarding developers with pitches for software that will help
public companies comply with the law, enacted in the wake of
high-profile accounting scandals. “There is a whole lot of
marketing going on here,” said John Hagerty, a vice president
at AMR Research Inc., in Boston. “In an environment of fear,
uncertainty and doubt, vendors are saying, ‘Use my
software.’”

St. Petersburg Times
Purging the public will
Key archival communications were lost when the House speaker's
chief of staff deleted all her e-mails, an action which may have
violated state law.
A Times Editorial
Published May 15, 2004
When the top staffer for the speaker of the Florida House dumps all her e-mails the
day after the legislative session is over, the act shouldn't be received with a
dismissive shrug. E-mail communications that illuminate the way Florida leaders
enact public policy are supposed to be saved and made available to the public upon
request. Both the state Constitution and Florida statutes spell out a strong
presumption in favor of retaining and sharing public records.
