14. I don't know if

I've ever mentioned this to you, but one of my very best friend's great uncles knew Merton well. In fact, he was instrumental in getting Merton to expand upon his writings for publication. (It's a long story, that we can discuss in greater detail later.)

One of the interesting news reports is that the grand jury continues its investigation. Too many people had apparently forgotten that Mr. Mueller had recently secured an extension for this, and were unaware of the distinction between a grand jury and a DOJ investigation. If I remember correctly, some time back, when I posted an OP regarding a grand jury's status as part of the judicial -- rather than executive-- branch, we discussed how federal judges respect and protect the power of the grand jury. Especially an investigative grand jury. But, as always, my memory isn't what it used to be, and maybe I'm confused, and we've never discussed that topic.
