The most transparent administration ever discovers “Droodles.”

Are you old enough to remember Roger Price’s “Droodles”?  They were little squares with almost abstract images that nevertheless represented something.  Here’s an example of a “ship arriving too late to save a drowning witch”:

One of my favorite Droodles showed a completely blank square, except for two side-by-side dots. The caption was “polar bear in a snow storm.” Proving its creative vigor, the Obama administration has now come up with a Droodle that could be entitled “polar bear in a black out.” Alternatively, it could also be entitled “totally redacted document that the Obama administration produces in response to a Freedom of Information Act request.”  Most of it pretty much looks like this:
