Posted on behalf of Pinch: “Remembering Lex, Northern Virginia/DC, 6 March, 2013 at Sines, Pentagon City. 1700…see you there!”
Others around the country will be hosting similar gatherings, so feel free to make mention of them in this post. We Admins will be sure to keep everyone updated as we draw closer to March 6th.

Not all that:
It’s not often that one person plays key roles in two — count ‘em, two — trillion-dollar disasters. Welcome, my friends, to the world of well-connected Democrat Jamie Gorelick.
