A New Era of Transparency?

I doubt it.  But, the Obama Administration has apparently said it wants to post the full text of contracts the federal government enters into with private contractors online.  I am very cautiously optimistic that this will help partially expose some of the secretive workings and contract details of private prisons.  However, I'm not in any way convinced this will help improve the system or lead to the abolition of private prisons (oh wouldn't that be nice...)
