Dear Mr. Ohlson:
This will respectfully advise, further to my letter to your office dated July 6, 1999, that I remain interested in employment at the U.S. Department of Justice.
As a courtesy to the Justice Department, I enclose correspondence that I have had with my former employer, the law firm of Akin, Gump, Strauss, Hauer & Feld. A decision by that firm to reinstate my employment as a new hire might affect my decisionmaking in connection with any possible future employment offer by the Justice Department.
[I had sent Mr. Ohlson one of my "attention-grabbing" job inquiries. I wonder if Mr. Ohlson spoke to Mr. Holder about the matter. Presumably, I left out the part about the guns, the bullets, and the brain tissue. Mr. Holder is a friend of Vernon Jordan, a management partner at Akin Gump.]
