Second post - would this be considered spamming?   Maybe if it weren't so true and pertinent.

Fox News of all places.

Why's he using a Tulsa backdrop.   I don't want him associated with Tulsa.

Well he's from here and apparently spends a good deal of time here now. I saw him at my son's lacrosse game a couple of weeks ago. His son plays for Cascia. Maybe he's not popular at the actual EPA?

The "lets give him a chance" crowd hang on the belief that he will surround himself with smarter people, but who picks the smarter people?

This makes no sense. Scott Pruitt is a very well known quantity. And is well owned by the energy industry.

I may well see him again tomorrow. We play Cascia again tomorrow night, this time at Cascia at 7:00 if anyone wants to come to talk to Scott. I'm going to refrain as it's my son's game and the game should be about the kids. The last game got really chippy as Cascia is big and tough and not very good. When the score started to get out of hand they got pretty dirty with cheap shots.

Horrible..just horrible.

Hard times have arrived at the Environmental Protection Agency. It’s not just the budget and staff cuts which have the long time staffers down in the dumps. It seems that they feel the new boss, Scott Pruitt, as well as his boss, aren’t exactly onboard with the old agenda which they’ve grown used to over eight years under Barack Obama. According to this report from the LA Times, this has some of them feeling so glum and hopeless that they are thinking of leaving their plush, virtually fire-proof jobs and heading out in search of greener pastures. The pressure is such that Jared Blumenfeld, a regional EPA administrator, says his phone is “ringing off the hook.”

Knowing you boss' goals are to undermine your work and eliminate your job must be the new "plush."

Yeah. The days of kids in coal mines are coming back because the EPA employees are depressed. Drama queens are everywhere.
