What do John Adams and Kevin Martin have in common?
Remember the "midnight commissions"? The lawyers in the readership certainly will remember Marbury v. Madison, On his last day in office, John Adams was busy signing commissions late into the night creating "midnight judges".
The above is from the FCC website today and shows some actions dated January 18th and 19th.

Above is a slightly more readable version. Kevin Martin resigned effective January 20th. January 19 was Martin Luther King day, a federal holiday. January 18 was Sunday. So it looks like Chairman Martin was busy on two days other than normal business days tidying up his legacy. Just like John Adams. Who knew?
