wanderindiana brings us an update on the White House missing emails mess, which we have discussed before
. It seems the hard drives of many White House computers are gone beyond the possibility of recovery

"Older White House computer hard drives have been destroyed, the White House disclosed to a federal court Friday in a controversy over millions of possibly missing e-mails from 2003 to 2005. The White House revealed new information about how it handles its computers in an effort to persuade a federal magistrate it would be fruitless to undertake an e-mail recovery plan that the court proposed."
