Summary:

FBI notes on celebrities and other public figures establish small details and gossip. The Associated Press used FOIA to request every "High Visibility Memorandum" between 1974-2005 from the Federal Bureau of Investigation, and received over 500 documents, containing almost 1,500 pages. The memoranda are generated if the request might reveal improper Bureau activities, or if the requester is a journalist or public figure.
