Slate Convictions Blog Alumni Take Over OLC:
First of all, a hearty congratulations to my friend Marty Lederman for his new position as Deputy Assistant Attorney General at the Office of Legal Counsel, as noted by Jonathan below. The blogosphere's loss will be the Administration's gain. It's also interesting to note that the new OLC will be run by alumni of Slate's short-lived Convictions blog: Dawn Johnsen, the nominee to head OLC, David Barron, the new Principal Deputy, and Marty were all co-bloggers there. Congrats to Dawn, David, and Marty for their new jobs.
