Someone might want to tell the White House that Harriet Miers doesn't work for them any more. Its official biography of Miers says she's still Counsel to the President – even though she quit that post back in January.

This may mean any of several options:

1: The Bush administration is now so secretive that even its Human Resources department isn't being told who's where any more.

2: They're hoping that by saying she's still there, it'll boost their claims of executive privilege a bit more.

3: They've been a bit distracted, what with the war and everything.

4: If it's not a file they're claiming is super-duper extra-double-trouble secret, then they're not really interested in keeping track of it.
