The return... dealing with spam

I'm back after being away for a week. As I mentioned, we were cruising Disney style in the Caribbean. More on that in the coming days.

Of course, the most ominious thing about coming back is dealing with e-mail. I had 6,872 messages. Now most of those were spam, of course -- almost 1,000. And then there were all the bounced messages from my 'out of office' note to the spammers. But I'm still trolling through many, many messages. If anybody has a good way of doing this, I'd welcome your thoughts.

I'm also starting to catch up on what I missed. There are always a few things in the mix such as GSA naming a political as the head of the Office of Governmentwide Policy. Hmmm. I'm sure there is a reason for it, but... I'm not sure what it is. Here is GSA's press release, for what it is worth.
