news bit..

I'd like for this news item to not pass unnoticed (I found it repeated in this morning's Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, on some late page), so I will point a link to it here:

HHS Secretary's Fund Gave Little to Charity

Health and Human Services Secretary Mike Leavitt and his relatives have claimed millions of dollars in tax deductions through a type of charitable foundation they created that until recently paid out very little in actual charity, tax records show.
Instead, much of the foundation's money has been invested or lent to the family's business interests and real estate holdings, or contributed to the Leavitt family genealogical society.

The latest in the Administration's trail of corruption.
