    I lost track of things around mid-season… I’m waiting for the DVD’s to come out on Netflix so I can catch back up.

    From AJC: [Abraham] was the first woman, apparently the first Ph.D and among very few engineers to run the huge department, with a $2 billion annual budget and 5,700 workers.

    Probably the first one who has a freaking clue and wasn’t some idiotic good ole Bubba appointee.

    The real story: What does this do to the glass ceiling she broke through when she got the job?

    And that bubba turned out to be MIKE EVANS.

    Again bait the trap with women or liquor, you’ll catch them everytime.

    Mike, you got a comment? Gena?

    I am hearing that Gena Abraham turned her resignation in too but the Gov does not want people to know yet.

    Can we please get someone who will help sort out the mess that is DOT to be Chairman.

    DOT is in trouble and it needs someone at the helm who will be an ally with the Commissioner to help clean it up, not someone who will play political favorites.

    That essentially means no House Members!

    Sorry to have to spell it out for you Bill, (vowels included, no extra charge):

    Tom Graves lost his office and Chairmanship for supporting Mike Evans’ re-election to the DOT board. Evans promptly thanked him by resigning from the board over his love interest, who now is his fiance.
