Obama will hire a physicist?
I've not been able to surf today so this may not be new news (redundant?), but TPM is saying that Obama might pick Steven Chu for energy secretary. I saw him give a talk recently, and it was a good one. The kind of talk where you think, "Why doesn't the government listen to this guy?". This is cool, maybe enough to break the funk I've been in, though picking out $50K worth of toys with grant money hasn't broken it, nor getting an invite for next semester. What's wrong with me?
