Say It Isn't So Ray!

I'm going to need to find another public figure to devote myself to apparently. U.S. Secretary of Transportation Ray LaHood last week announced he will be leaving the U.S. Department of Transportation in 2013. Being in transportation, I had pinned all my hopes and dreams on him. Well it's obvious transportation needs a new hero, although Mr. Ray, as I like to call him, did say he still has some big plans before he splits in another couple years.

LaHood didn't say exactly why he's calling it quits, but did hint that a lack of cooperation between parties has become frustrating. Transportation Issues Daily has more.
