One More Farewell

to add to Tom Brokaw, Kofi Annan, and Billy Graham:

Tom Ridge. Like John Ashcroft (though unlike him, not demonized) he has given tireless effort to a thankless job, and the two of them can claim a large part of the thanks that we have not suffered a terrorist attack since 9/11.

Ridge's apparent successor, Bernard Kirek, the former Chief of the NYPD seems like a great choice (indeed Bush's new team is every bit as impressive as the original). Powerline quotes some interesting biographical information from the Times.
