Thank you, Melanie, for that introduction and, as always, for your exemplary leadership on government transparency.  I have now had the pleasure of working with you for more than two years on these issues, and I think this is the third Sunshine Week we have kicked off together.  Thank you for your tireless and excellent work as a government leader on Freedom of Information Act policy and administration.  The American people are fortunate to have you in their service.
