“What’s the matter, honey?” her grandfather asked. “You look so sad and disappointed.”
“Why do they call it the ‘Freedom of Information Act’ when all they have to do is mark things secret or classified and then no one can have access to it,” Teresa asked. “Don’t you find that awfully suspicious, Gramps?”
“Oh sweetly,” Gramps replied. “It will be a frosty day in hell before there’s anything close to transparency in government and politics.”
This post was inspired by the comment Teresa (The Haunted Wordsmith) made on my one-word challenge (classified). I used her comment as the first line of this post. I also used these prompts: Word of the Day Challenge (doleful), Scotts Daily Prompt (grandfather), Your Daily Word Prompt (suspicious), and Ragtag Daily Prompt (frost).
