  1. Someone on his staff writes excellent investigative letters, as well as “gotcha” letters. He doesn’t grandstand on judicial confirmations. OTOH, his investigations go nowhere & get little attention for all the time & money spent. He should retire even though he still has most of his marbles, unlike someone else we know who occupies the WH. He’ll be 90 next yr. That’s long enough.
