White House Holds Back Clinton Papers (washingtonpost.com)
Zelikow said in an interview last night that he first notified the White House of the problem in February but that "we don't have answers yet."

EMI -- 1,500 (FYI, 434 of these in downstate, republican Jacksonville, Illinois, population 18,940)
Gateway -- 2,500

(brain clicks and whirrs as digits fall into place ..... 7,300 from the companies big enough that cuts get noticed by the press).
