Webb and Warner send five names to White House for Fourth Circuit

The Richmond paper reports here, the Roanoke paper reports here, and the Charlottesville paper reports here that Senators Warner and Webb have sent to President Bush the names of Justices Agee and Lemons, U.S. District Judge Conrad, lawyer Thomas Albro, and Richmond law professor John Douglass for nomination to the Fourth Circuit.

If those are the choices, I'm rooting for Judge Conrad, whom my Grandma Conrad claimed was somehow kin to us, and is from Southwest Virginia and lived for a while in Abingdon, and went to William & Mary Law, and clerked in the W.D. Va. before he became magistrate judge.
