I’m shocked.

I suppose technically the EPA didn’t “You’re FIRED!” about one-third of the scientists on the EPA’s 18-seat Board of Scientific Counselors, you know, the board that essentially recommends regulations. Their term was up, and gosh, instead of being re-upped as per usual, EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt done hazardous wasted them. The WaPo reports that EPA dismissed half of the board’s members.

An EPA spokesman told the WaPo that it was a “clean break” with the Kenyan Usurper’s junta: “We’re not going to rubber-stamp the last administration’s appointees. Instead, they should participate in the same open competitive process as the rest of the applicant pool.”

We have a comment policy (sort of)

We often encounter extreme amounts of spam targeting more controversial posts. This tends to annoy and confuse Aunt Tildy. If your comment is accidentally omitted, please help her out by resubmitting, perhaps including a note telling us what happened. If you find comments closed, we can still put yours in its proper place. Just attach to another post with an explanation.

Aunt Tildy appreciates most every comment. Truly. But she has what could be an unrealistic view of the innocence of younger readers. She may hesitate when profanity becomes extreme.

In some cases, you might follow our lead. When we ruffle her delicate sensibilities, a soft apology has usually helped.
