Bee was useful watchdog

I want to compliment The Bee for Sunday’s front page story “City Apartments: $276K each to build.” This was journalism at its very best! Investigating these types of corruption requires skilled reporters and lots of money and courage that is quite scarce in print journalism these days. The First Amendment to the Constitution provides for freedom of the press and I’m sure that the framers meant that the media should be a watchdog on government.
