My personal musings about anything that gets on my radar screen--heavily dominated by politics.


RE: Box 9—John G. Roberts--UPDATED

So tonight I participated in the great “Adopt A Box of Docs” experiment started by Hugh Hewitt, in an effort to inform, through bloggers, the general public of what is in the latest document dump by the White House. I was assigned—by Generalissimo DuaneBox 09 JGR Chadha re: District of Columbia. And, lo and behold, what did I learn about John Roberts?

Zip. Zilch. Nada. Squat. Bupkus.

Just to give you an idea what this box was about, here is my rough table of contents:

Pp 1-10
memo from Stanley Harris, U.S. Attorney for D.C., to William Tyson, Director of the Executive Office for U.S. Attorneys, detailing his objections to a proposal which would transfer primary prosecutorial responsibilities for the District of Columbia from the U.S. Attorney’s Office to a Local Prosecutor

P 11
Other supporting arguments

Pp 12 – 19
Memo detailing provisions for reimbursement of the federal
government by the District of Columbia for prosecutorial activities in the District, with list of attachments

Pp 20 – 47
Aforementioned attachments, every single one of which predates the Reagan administration, and thus John Roberts

I sincerely hope that every single one of these boxes of documents contains information of this value. A vigorous debate on the value of increased self-determination in the District of Columbia in which John Roberts appears to have not participated at all would be most useful in determining his fitness to sit the Supreme Court.

Of course, other documents will surely be more interesting. But every minute that Ralph Neas’ goons have to spend sifting through non-germane esoterica such as this is a minute well-spent by Ralph Neas’ goons.

UPDATE: Apparently, Dafydd got assigned another box 9, dealing with a similar subject matter, and with a decidedly more Roberts-intensive list of contents (in that it actually contained a memo by John Roberts). Read his take on his box here.
