I put Middle Earth Journal in hiatus in May of 2008 and moved to Newshoggers.
I temporarily reopened Middle Earth Journal when Newshoggers shut it's doors but I was invited to Participate at The Moderate Voice so Middle Earth Journal is once again in hiatus.

Running out of delegees

Judging from the testimony of "AG" Alberto Gonzales he had delegated the entire job to others and really didn't have a clue as to what was going on in the Justice Department. Well another one of the delegees quit today.
Official close to attorney firings quits
WASHINGTON — A senior Justice Department official who helped carry out the dismissals of federal prosecutors said Friday he is resigning. Mike Elston, chief of staff to Deputy Attorney General Paul McNulty, is the fifth Justice official to leave after being linked to the dismissals of the prosecutors.

Elston was accused of threatening at least four of the eight fired U.S. attorneys to keep quiet about their ousters. In a statement Friday, the Justice Department said Elston was leaving voluntarily to take a job with an unnamed Washington-area law firm.

The firings have led to congressional investigations, an internal Justice Department inquiry and calls on Capitol Hill for the resignation of Attorney General Alberto Gonzales.
He probably needed to make more money to pay for all those attorneys he thinks he might need.

Since no one in their right mind would go to work for the Gonzales Justice Department it may become necessary for Gonzo to do the job himself soon. Maybe that will be enough to convince him to quit so he can continue to spend time with his family.
