Really? I can’t even see how there can be any controversy over this. Pay off Lexis-Nexis contract, open the publishing to bids, pay for it out of taxes. Public domain.

Posted on June 25, 2019 by tengrain If you didn’t watch it last night, I urge you to visit Crooks and Liars to watch: The Investigation: A Search for the Truth in 10 Acts.
