Associated Press article (3/14/06):<br><a href="http://hosted.ap.org/dynamic/stories/S/SIMONSON_RESIGNATION?SITE=MITRA&SECTION=HOME&TEMPLATE=DEFAULT" target="_blank">http://hosted.ap.org/dynamic/stories...MPLATE=DEFAULT</a><br><br><i>One of the Bush administration's principal advisers on bioterrorism and other public health emergencies has resigned.<br><br>
Some Democrats, and a key Republican, Rep. Tom Davis of Virginia, had been critical of Simonson's work, saying it would be better to have a medical expert serve in his position rather than a lawyer.</i><br><br>
Umm, yes . . . I would think so.

How do you have a former Amtrak corporate attorney hold the position of Assistant Secretary for Public Health Emergency Preparedness?<br><br>
Hmm, let's see . . . from 1995-1999, Simonson was Legal Counsel to then Wisconsin Governor Tommy G. Thompson, who later became Secy of Health and Human Services. Then Thompson hired him as counsel over at HHS.<br><br>
This is what former HHS secy Thompson said in a press release. Is this scary or what?<br><br><i>Stewart Simonson will be an outstanding Assistant Secretary for Public Health Emergency Preparedness as we strive to protect the health of the American public and support the War on Terrorism. Throughout his career, I have valued his sound advice and good counsel.</i>

<i>Stewart Simonson, assistant secretary for public health emergency preparedness, told the president in a resignation letter Monday that he had accomplished what he had set out to do, and it was time to move on.</i><br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/nod.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="nod"><br><br>

i'm so tired of the cronyism in this administration. i can't believe how blind they are to science in almost any situation - global warming, forest fires, public health... i'm appalled at how basic rights have been trounced. and i can't believe the $$ we're spending "spreading democracy" around the world for "free open societies", whilst propping up an empire at home.<br><br>
i could go on but i just get depressed and angry about it - i'll save my exended rant for another thread in a more appropriate forum some other time - with a sick ds, i have better things requiring my energy today.
