Where Is The Recess Supervisor When We Need Him?

GWB has made another recess appointment because the mean, old Republican dominated Congress wouldn't approve his nominee. This time it's Richard Stickler as the head of the Mine Safety and Health Administration.

You remember mine safety? That's an issue that the adminsistration gave lip service to after Sago and now another in Preston County, WV. The House was concerned that Stickler was too cozy with the industry and has a record that show that mines he's been responsible for have an accident rate double the national average.

Do you feel safer now?
