Pesticide Exec in Bush's EPA

George Bush appointed Elin Miller, former North American president of Tokyo-based pesticide maker, Arysta Life-Science regional administrator for EPA's Region 10 headquartered in Seattle. She'll oversee Washington, Oregon, Alaska and Idaho.

It makes perfect sense when you think about it.

Energy polluters write the Energy Bill behind closed doors.

No Child Left Behind leaves schools falling short.

Clear Skies clean no skies.

Why wouldn't pesticide makers run EPA? If an environmental disaster occurs in the Northwest, Elin would be in line for a Medal of Freedom!

"The people in government I know that worked for her had a lot of admiration for her, because she took off her industry hat when she went in and went to work there," said Jay Vroom, president of CropLife America, a group representing the pesticide industry.

"I think she's a consensus builder," he said.

Yeah, that's the ticket!
