Ms. Busch,

I still have not heard any confirmation or answer to my response that I am not a commercial requester by any stretch. Our email client indicates that your office received my message, so this is doubly confusing.

Please be in touch as soon as you can so that we can clear up any confusion DHS Privacy Office may have as to my status as a media requester and journalist.

Best regards,
Shawn
