See ya, Norman.

Today, the Secretary of Transportation, Norman Mineta, resigned. I attended the speech that was held in the courtyard of the DOT building here at L’Enfant Plaza. It was absolutely phenomenal weather. Mid 70s and zero humidity. Almost like a late autumn afternoon.

His speech was pretty heartfelt, recounting 9/11 as the Secretary of Transportation and as a human being, recalling the events that let up to him being named Secretary of Transportation and being the only Democratic cabinet member.

All in all, it felt like everyone was going to sincerely miss him. Many people were in tears. Hell, I’ve only been around here at DOT for a year and change, and I will miss him.

mesothelioma – huh?! are you kidding me?!
