Rich--

Eastern District of Virginia, Alexandria. Home of the rocket docket.

Our den mother was judge Leonie Brinkema, most recently notorious as the gray-hair-in-a-bun trial judge in the Zacarias Moussaoui matter. Our grand jury dealt with everything from reckless driving on military bases to major drug cases to terrorism. We indicted well over 70 cases, some of which involved hearing testimony over many months; others, as you note, were simple one-time presentations. It was quite a ride, and we definitely earned our fully taxable thirty bucks a day.

Glad my feelings reached someone responsible for the current positive state of affairs. It's something everyone should experience.
