This is a request under the Freedom of Information Act. I hereby request the following records:

So because a lot of other requests came in, they were put in ahead of my request? I was 522 of 975, now I'm 795 of 1049. I was told in your initial letter that the requests, mine in particular, would be processed in the order it was received.
