My Dear Old Aunt Harriet

Amba comments on Harriet Miers here and here. Also, Ann Althouse gives her opinions on George Will's strongly worded column. And I wonder if Howard Dean has been working too hard... Maybe it's been too long since his last war whoop?

(For those who are interested, Aunt Harriet was a character introduced into the Batman myth in the 1960s by Julius Schwartz, possibly to help deter questions about the propriety of two grown men living with a teenaged boy. The name "Aunt Harriet" was taken from a line in the Hoagy Carmichael song "Rockin' Chair.")

Here's a San Francisco Chronicle article that explains that Ms. Miers used to work for Melvin Belli. She left after a short internship to return to Texas. That's probably just as well, given what we know has happened with Mr. Belli's proteges in the past.
