Thank you for your response to my TPIA request. You have indicated that it is complete. I find that surprising but not immediately disprovable, so I have closed the request in MuckRock and published my analysis of what I did and did not receive from you at the following URL: https://radicalmilitantlibrarian.tumblr.com/post/148576003331/deeply-disturbing-or-profoundly-weird-round-rock

If you wish to close any remaining gaps in the record—such as the one from mid-October 2015 through early June 2016—absent a follow-up TPIA request from myself I shall consider it a voluntary act on your part and thus not subject to invoicing me for costs.

Sincerely,
M. Alan Thomas II
