What does a non-disclosure agreement say?

Since this seems to be a very hot topic, I thought I would provide an example of a non-disclosure agreement used by the United States Government that would be typical (if not exact one) that Secretary Clinton would have signed prior to being granted access to classified information.

Was Baseball Great Ty Cobb Really A Racist? New Biography Says No

Ty Cobb retired as baseball’s all-time hits leader in 1928 – the record stood for nearly 60 years. He was a member of the Baseball Hall of Fame’s first class. But despite his success, he was far from universally admired.

“Ty Cobb was was a racist. I threw him out three times and he quit. He said, ‘No ni**er gonna throw me out.’ But I said, ‘Haha. I’m throwin’ you out,’ so he left.”

Ted “Double Duty” Radcliffe told Bill Littlefield that one afternoon at Comiskey Park in Chicago in 1997. Radcliffe was a talented pitcher and catcher in the Negro Leagues from the 1920s to the ‘40s. He faced Cobb in an exhibition in Cuba.

Radcliffe wasn’t the only person to label Ty Cobb a racist. In biographies and magazine stories, Cobb has been accused of beating up black men, simply because they were black and handy. In a new book titled “Ty Cobb: A Terrible Beauty,” Charles Leerhsen presents a different picture of one of the greatest ballplayers of all time.
