Scooter Has New Name: No. 28301 - 016 - New York Times

Hey Scooter, why don't you just spill your guts, get you sentence reduced and be done with it.

By the time Junior and the Dick are through, there isn't going to be a Republican party for you to come home to anyway. At least you can be with your family sooner.

Libby Becomes Inmate No. 28301 - 016 - New York Times:

WASHINGTON (AP) -- For years he was known as chief of staff to Vice President Dick Cheney and assistant to President Bush. On Wednesday, I. Lewis ''Scooter'' Libby became federal inmate No. 28301-016.

Libby, who was convicted in March of lying and obstructing an investigation into the leak of a CIA operative's identity, faces 2 1/2 years in prison.

The assignment of an inmate number by the U.S. Bureau of Prisons represents another step on the road to prison. Inmate numbers stay with prisoners even after their release.

Libby, however, is hoping that an appeals court will intervene and put the sentence on hold before he is ordered to surrender.
