Tom Ridge quits
After 22-years in public service, the last several of which were spent in a department which merged all or parts of 22 federal agencies, Homeland Security Secretary Tom Ridge has resigned. He said, of course, that he wants to spend time with his family. That's code for getting a real job in the private sector.
On the list to replace Ridge: Senator Joseph Lieberman (D-Connecticut), who loves to boast that the Homeland Security Department was his idea.
