Senate Confirms Surgeon General

Senate Confirms Surgeon General; The New York Times

After much agitation earlier in the day, the Senate voted to confirm Dr. Regina Benjamin as the nation’s surgeon general on Thursday night amid a national emergency over the swine flu outbreak.

Comment: It was a very chilling moment when US Protection Services whisked Doctor Regina through the massive piles of dead bodies stacked like cord wood on her way to the Capital. As she sat in the Senate gallery awaiting her confirmation, the incredible load of the national health emergency weighed heavily upon her having just learned that her favorite goldfish surrendered to the menacing H1N1 virus.

...amid a national emergency over the swine flu outbreak...the horror...the horror...
