Cereal killer

President Bush today nominated Carlos Gutierrez, CEO of Kellogg's, to replace the departing Don Evans as Commerce Secretary.

Asked how he felt about the appointment, Gutierrez reportedly said, "It's G-R-R-R-R-R-R-EAT!"

In other news, the President named Snap, Crackle, and Pop as undersecretaries in the Commerce Department. No word yet on a government post for Toucan Sam.

(And now a true story. A couple of years ago, the ad agency that represents Kellogg's sent talent scouts to the Barbershop Harmony Society's International Convention, in search of a resonant bass vocalist to replace the retiring Thurl Ravenscroft, the original voice of Tony the Tiger. I never did hear whether they hired anyone for the job, or if they did, whether it was one of our barbershop guys.)
