"He championed open government, as a legislator and Cabinet member. Stone physically removed doors from his office suite in what we now call the Historic Capitol, and tourists could wander through to see him and his staff at work. Of course, there were secure areas where legally confidential papers were kept, but Stone set an example that open government is an attitude – if you wanted a document, and it wasn’t exempt under public-records laws, he’d just hand it to you.
What a concept."
