Live blogging: Terri Schiavo, Part 2

Finally got through to someone at the Justice Department that didn't transfer me in mid-sentence. They were honest and admitted they couldn't answer my question (Which Federal law enforcement agency had the responsibility of enforcing a Congressional subpoena?). They transfered me to the FBI.

Now, the FBI has a nice little set up. You have to know the seven digit number of the person you're supposed to be talking to, otherwise you wait several minutes, and then get a busy signal. No humans. (That may be a more significant phrase than it appears)

My cell phone battery is almost dead (we had to get rid of our land lines after being harassed to death by telemarketers) so I'm having to hold the thing up with the charger.

I called the DOJ again and "operator #52" actually allowed me to finish the sentence before transferring me. Guess what. The DOJ has the same black hole system that the FBI has. It looks like both are now transferring people to answering machine limbo. I think I'll try the Florida US Marshal's office again. (What do we pay these guys for, anyway?)
