I was wondering about that (and a little worried because the report I saw called him a ‘friend’ of Obama) do we know of any good, objective bio links?

sorry ‘bout that, Victor. He appears to be a good choice, and while my dog Scout would be a better pick than Powell, I am watching this closely. I am getting the ol’ “meet the new boss” angst with some of the appointees, especially Ray LaHood from Peoria. At least we will have a Dem majority on the board HOPEFULLY (fingers crossed) to do battle with the telecom lobbies who tried to pull the worst shit the last 8 (excuse me 30) years. Sen Russ Feingold and Rep Howard Waxman as well, two solid progressives in our corner.

still no real word..we will have to wait to see. But as a citizen who has gone to a panel or two ON MY OWN DIME in DC to hear various rethuglickins spew TelCom lobbyist provided bullshit, as well as the pleasantries from (oxymoron alert) Clear Channel trying to get an absolute stake, I am relieved at this change.

Now Ray LaHood as Sec of Transportation, THAT worries me. And we can only hope that the former Gov of Iowa isn’t in the Monsanto pockets too deeply…
