... he does intend to stay on the job for several months while a successor is identified by the President and then confirmed by the Senate...
THIS could get interesting... :o

Goodbye and good riddance!

If you recall, O'Keefe is the person who ridiculed "foamologists'" during the Columbia accident investigation.

Perhaps the new administrator might have some background in engineering, instead of the seemingly endless line of MBAs with their "I can manage anything, I don't need to know the technical crap." attitudes.

Well said---but 'the appointer' himself is the first MBA-holding prez in US history and a solid proponent of 'sound science' (http://www.signonsandiego.com/uniontrib/20040709/news_lz1e9schubert.html). :cry:

Too late!---Hoagland just announced on Coast-to-Coast AM he would accept a nomination, urging listeners to lobby the White House.
