It's not the President's job to micromanage the Department of Justice, but it is the job of the person he appoints and Congress confirms. While the President can't (or at least shouldn't) tell the Attorney General not to go after certain individuals or not to prosecute certain crimes, he is perfectl...

Definitely, and I guess Kelvin isn't such a bad name to have. I mean, it could have been Melvin or Kefin (no offense to any Melvins or Kefins here). It reminds me of how Oprah's name was Orpah, but no one pronounced it correctly.

Re: The Darker Side of the News

Yeah. Political economics is funny. The more politicians there are, the less influence any given one can be expected to have. That should drive the price down, but the fact they got elected seems to go to their heads. They get a vastly inflated sense of their value.
