Snow announces departure date
Press secretary to step down Sept. 14
WASHINGTON - Tony Snow, the highly visible White House press secretary, will leave his job on Sept. 14 and be replaced by his deputy, Dana Perino, an administration official said Friday.
President Bush was to announce the changes during an appearance in the White House briefing room.
Snow, ailing with cancer, had said recently he would leave before the end of Bush's presidency because he needs to make more money.
I do not envy Mr Snow's situation with his illness and position at the White House.
But in the same breathe, I would like to say that I personally know of quite a few families of 5 that would be willing to try and live on $166k a year with full government benefits.
