I have no connexion at all with the US Marine Corps, or any other Marine Corps, other than that my secretary's Dad is a retired Marine. Allow me to refresh your mind: I am a general-practice attorney. I deal with First Amendment rights at least every week and with police efforts to interview reporters and to examine their files at least a couple of times every year, as well as with media-access-to-the-Courtroom issues. (Thank heavens, the Feds do not allow cameras in the courtroom, and Virginia only very limited access. In 18 years of practicing law, I have only once had to deal with a trial being taped by the media and, even there, they were required to remain outside the courtroom and to use remotes.)
