What is happening in Ferguson has been an object lesson about the importance of accountability and transparency. Confidentiality amid an active investigation is one thing; a policy of public obfuscation is another. The account of a 911 call about the robbery came after days of legal requests filed under Missouri’s Sunshine Law, and makes the department’s refusal to disclose even the most basic details of the case even more inscrutable. Information might have dispersed more crowds than armored vehicles did.

If you wanted to build a two-story home of 2,392 square feet out of Legos, it would take 11,647,839 Lego bricks and would cost $1,161,784. That’s more expensive than the average price of a New York City condo.
