RIP, Rusty.

January 27, 2005 Warren "Rusty" Asher of the Office of Personnel Management's communications office was found dead last week in his Washington apartment. I didn't know Rusty personally, only having talked to him on the phone a couple of times. But what I heard from our reporters on a regular basis was that...

Quiet, Please.

January 26, 2005 I've got C-SPAN on in my office, and they're showing a debate on the House floor. I am once again astonished by how much time the leaders of the House spend merely trying to get members to be quiet so debate can begin. For the past several minutes, all C-SPAN...

Benefits and the Budget.

January 25, 2005 Today's Wall Street Journal features a front-page takeout on how rising costs of health care coverage and other benefits for military retirees is exerting tremendous pressure on the Defense budget. Not to toot our own horn or anything, but GovExec's Katherine Peters warned in a piece more than three years...

Border Agent Backdown.

January 25, 2005 It's always nice to see lame-duck Cabinet secretaries loosen up a little bit and start telling it like it is. Tom Ridge acknowledged in a USA Today interview Monday that while the intelligence overhaul bill President Bush signed late last year called for adding new Border Patrol agents at the...

You're Fired, Bro.

January 24, 2005 Would you take a Cabinet job if it meant your brother had to get fired to clear the way for you? According to Steve Barr's column in the Post today, VA Secretary-designate Jim Nicholson would.

Terror Talk.

January 21, 2005 I just started reading Graham Allison's book, Nuclear Terrorism, and came across this chilling statement from Suleiman Abu Gheith, Osama bin Laden's spokesman, issued nine months after 9/11: What happened to America is something natural, an expected event for a country that uses terror, arrogant policy and suppression against the...

Second Wave.

January 21, 2005 FEMA has pulled a cute little tsunami game for kids from its Web site--for the second time! Somebody had the good sense to yank the game from the site immediately after the devastating South Asian tsunami last month, but then some teachers apparently complained that kids missed it, so FEMA...

Facing the Music.

January 21, 2005 Just one more inaugural tidbit: Ever wonder why nobody sings "Hail to the Chief"? Maybe it's because these are the words: Hail to the Chief we have chosen for the nation, Hail to the Chief! We salute him, one and all. Hail to the Chief, as we pledge co-operation In...

In-blog-uration.

January 20, 2005 President Bush is now standing in his box at the inaugural parade dancing along with some group whose members are pushing decorated shopping carts. This has officially become surreal.

Our own Chris Strohm

January 20, 2005 Our own Chris Strohm has returned from the inaugural festivities with the following scoop: He was physically assaulted by former President George H.W. Bush. OK, it was really just a hale-and-hearty, hey-old-buddy punch on the arm as the ex-president enthusiastically told reporters that he thought his son's speech was just...
