I couldn't let you go off on your Easter weekend without a cheerful missive.
(from WHAT'S NEW Robert L. Park Friday, 14 Apr 06 Washington, DC)
DOE: SECRETARY OF ENERGY BODMAN DISBANDS HIS ADVISORY BOARD.
He has never met with SEAB. A DOE spokesman explained that the
Secretary, a chemical engineer, has "a science background," and
doesn't need advice. Besides, President Bush doesn't have a
science advisor, and look at how well things are going. When
Ronald Regan became President, he initially declined to name a
Science Advisor. He explained that he knew an engineer back in
California he could call if anything ever came up.
