I guess President Bush and Secretary Chao are stickin’ with Richard Stickler afterall.  A personnel announcement this afternoon from the White House says:

“The President intends to designate Richard Stickler, of West Virginia, to be Acting Assistant Secretary of Labor for Mine Safety and Health.”

Note the use of the word “designate” not “nominate.”  And now the webpage featuring Mr. Stickler’s photo is back up on MSHA’s website.  My previous posts on this are here, here, and here.  Oy!
