AP reports that Gale Norton,the Secretary of the Interior will step down after five years in the post. The article gives no reasons why,but mentions her sheparding gas and oil drilling and other pet Bush anti-environment polilcies. Who Bush will tap to replace her is to be determined,but if you like green grass,fresh air,open spaces and trees,then prepare to be disappointed again,but what the hell is new. The only question left is which pro-business,anti-green lobbyist gets the job. Predictions?
