U.S. Civil Rights Commission
A bit of good news, although there is some question whether Mary Frances Berry will leave with grace: President Bush
"will appoint two new members to the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights this week, possibly as early as today, and replace panel Chairman Mary Frances Berry.
Several sources close to the commission told The Washington Times yesterday that the new panel members will be Ashley Taylor, a former Virginia deputy attorney general, and Gerald Reynolds, the former assistant secretary in the Department of Education's civil rights office.
The new members will replace Ms. Berry and Vice Chairman Cruz Reynoso on the eight-member panel."
In an unrelated matter, another member of the Civil Rights Commission, Jennifer C. Braceras reminds us that President Bush could appoint someone to the Supreme Court who has not been a judge.
