All sophisticated readers (a/k/a, all of you) should annotate the last three paragraphs of this New York Times story about the failure of the Andrew Cuomo administration to retain all electronic records:
Mr. Cuomo prefers using the telephone, and does not use e-mail. But in an interview last week, he noted that even when he goes fishing with his brother off Long Island, he takes his BlackBerry. “With the BlackBerry,” he said, “you’re never really away anymore.”
Mr. Cuomo’s office said there was nothing unusual about its use of BlackBerry messaging, which an article in The Daily News described on Monday.
In an e-mail, Mr. Cuomo’s spokesman, Josh Vlasto, said, “The Times has sunk to a new low by suggesting that normal, standard office practices to ensure confidential information is kept confidential is somehow objectionable.”
