Files from 'In Cold Blood' investigation auctioned

Actually I think it's pretty poor judgment and disrespectful to the family for the "owner" of these case files to "tastefully auction" such graphic information.

"Our focus was to tastefully auction the lot off as something historic," McAvoy said. "Both Ron and I did not want to exploit the family, but it is part of the history and has to be passed on."

If the concern was to preserve this information for history then it should have been donated to an appropriate source rather than to sell it to the highest bidder which does actually exploit the family.

SRS concern

If I remember correctly wasn't B. Wayne Sims a legislator when the whole foster care privatization scheme was invented? Makes this question a little ironic:
"Are agency employees barred from legislative involvement if all or part of their salaries are paid with state money — even if their lobbying efforts are paid for with private dollars?"
