I also found it interesting that someone in the DOJ decided to use Google to do a little research to learn more about me.
I wonder if that’s standard operating procedure or just a little extracurricular activity? It’s good to know that people in the government use the same research tools that we do. Who knows, maybe they’ll become regular readers.
