* My Liberal Activist Tribute to the Radical Decision of a Conservative Legal Scholar and Judge Upon His Death

Robert H. Bork: 


The mysterious, principled  courage of Mr. Conservative using his three DAY tenure as Acting Attorney General to make the radical decision to overturn Attorney General John Mitchell's three year refusal to convene a Federal Grand Jury  investigation of the Kent State murders.

LINK:   Robert H. Bork was Acting Attorney General for THREE DAYS  in 1973 . His major accomplishment in those three days was to reverse former Attorney General John Mitchell's decision  NOT to convene a Federal Grand Jury to investigate the May 4, 1970 killing of four Kent State University students by Ohio National Guardsmen.
