My post of June 2, which said nothing much, attracted a comment from someone claiming to be Ray LaHood, the U.S. Secretary of Transportation, and pointing to his blog. His comment even refers to me by name, so if it's spam it's high-end spam at least. It was posted at 9:46 AM US Eastern Time, an hour when I'd hope LaHood is too busy to be probing dark corners of the blgosophere. I suppose LaHood's staff could be authorised to impersonate him for the purpose of promoting his blog, and even in that case it's a nice gesture. Anyway, thanks to Ray, and Ray's people, for their work in turning the battleship and pointing it in a new direction.
