"WASHINGTON, Nov. 16 (Xinhuanet) -- US Air Force Secretary James G.Roche submitted his resignation Tuesday, the Pentagon announced.

Roche plans to step down on Jan. 20, 2005, or sooner if a successor is confirmed by the Senate before then, the Pentagon said in a statement.

Also on Tuesday, the Senate confirmed defense industry executive Francis J. Harvey as secretary of the Army, to replace Thomas White, who was dismissed by Rumsfeld in May 2003. Enditem"

Another resignation.

Cheer up. The fact is that even though there have been a number of resignations recently, this is not uncommon. Clinton had seven when he was reelected.

The untold story is that the Bush Administration held on to his staff members longer than most Presidents. The average length of stay for Cabinet members is three years. Bush has done much better.

And remember that these people have worke under extraordinary pressure for the better part of four years. Many of them deserve a break.

Especially, Colin Powell and John Ashcroft, to name but two.

Well, Powell always hinted that he was a one-term SoS. Sure, it was a let-down, but nobody should have been suprised by it,

I didn't mention them. Should give you a hint as to whether I am able to give an educated opinion about them, considering I didn't even know who half of them were until they resigned


Anyway, these guys Seem to agree with Grady. Make up your own mind.

Nothing like having a retired Navy captain and Northrop exec running the Air Force anyway. Probably ordered ships for the Air Force.
