Alex, I resorted the appropriate links and separated the "all" Friedman section to a separate article, which is still at 41 kb and should be no longer than 32. I suggest further subdividing by year(s), since this is obviously an endless task.

Also, if you had not already seen it, the Democratic Caucus's Senate Journal contains a page called "On Timetables." This includes citations and links, although some of the links are already expired.

As you can see from the "all" Friedman section, I either inserted the full citation (according to the posted link) or did a text search to find either another source or a reliable source where the quote can be accessed.

I have not done the same (inserting the source) to the Congress section, but feel free to copy the links over.

Hey Alex, just saying "hi" so you don't have a blank talk page.--Conor Kenny 11:22, 11 June 2007 (EDT)


Since I'm not sure what this is all about, why are you adding/changing category designations for politics (US)?

I just checked and there are currently:

Politics(US) ?(1 member)
Politics (U.S.) ?(235 members)
Politics (US) ?(257 members)

SW: Posse Comitatus Fix

Hello Alex.

I'm the originator of the Posse Comitatus Act article. In this article's talk page you state "It needs to be edited with the usual structure, format, references, etc... similar to the other legislation articles."

Is the template that you have at the bottom of your user page the structure, etc, to which you refer? Could you give me an article to use as an example?

Thank you,

James Horn


After review I don't think that the Posse Comitatus Act article should be commandeered as a Congresspedia article for these reasons:

1. It was written originally as a SW article.
2. It was written as a documentation of public political commentary occurring at the time, not for upcoming legislative bills concerning the act.
3. It documents Congressional action in the face of that commentary.
4. It would be a good SW resource article for any Congresspedia article concerning Posse Comitatus.

Therefore I'll request that this article be reverted to it's previous SW status.

Please see Stealth Legislation. A related Congresspedia article would be Earmarks.
