Setback for warheads policy
House panel says it won't fund new nuclear weapons
Lobbyist won't run consumer agency

A manufacturing industry lobbyist withdrew his nomination to head the Consumer Product Safety Commission
My favorite quote from that story?
John Engler, the head of the manufacturers' group [...] said Baroody was the victim of an "unprincipled smear campaign" and "would have been a great CPSC chairman."
Ohhh, poor baby, of course of course it's a smear when the head of your lobby (AKA fox) shouldn't be guarding the Consumer Product Safety Commission (AKA henhouse.)
