Rovers The Ohio legislature is setting up a committee on how to handle "e-mails about government business sent through private e-mail accounts."

"It needs to be defined, because the new technology drives these questions," said Rep. Larry Wolpert, R-Hilliard, a co-chairman of the Privacy and Public Records Access Committee. "As a legislator, I want to know what I can and cannot do, and right now it's gray."

I imagine that this will soon be a hot topic for many legislatures (and the journalists who cover them).

It is a big pain to type out "e-mails about government business sent through private e-mail accounts."

Can we all agree to call these "Rovers" in the future?

Thanks.
