This is awesome. Portland's city officials - police, judges, mayor - insisted they have the right to search people's trash with no warrants. So local alt-weekly () went through their trash and published the contents (via )

I love this too but can't understand why they didn't publish the very personal note written on the napkin.

I see that now, but it was unclear because 1) it says "Updated December 11, 2017" at the top and 2) besides Gellman, people are tweeting it now - the point isn't really changed by its age.

If it would have exposed the private matters of other people - children, friends, spouses, etc. - I can see the justification for not publishing it.

Exactly. That's the key lesson of this Portland story. So often, political officials defend surveillance - until they become targets. I remember Jane Harman defending NSA- until she learned she was spied on: then sounded like Snowden. Dianne Feinstein, too
