Bush Nominates Longtime Friend and Attorney Harriet Miers for Supreme Court
President
Bush has selected White House counsel Harriet Miers to replace retiring Suprem
Court Justice Sandra Day O’Connor. If confirmed, Miers – who has never
served as a judge – would become the third woman to serve on the Supreme
Court. Last year, Legal Times reported that Miers "has long been one of
the most discreet, most private, and most protective members of George W. Bush’s
inner
circle."

Orleans Parish DA Eddie Jordan on Racial Stereotyping, Police Looting and
Private Military Contractors
We speak with the District Attorney of
Orleans Parish, Eddie Jordan about the grossly exaggerated reports of
multiple murders and criminal mayhem in New
Orleans in the days after hurricane Katrina hit. Jordan says, "I’m pleased
that there was very little bloodshed, but it seems to me that the national media
outlets had an obligation to verify the charges [of violence] being made by
some of the evacuees and some of the public officials."
