Snap, Crackle, Pop-- Commerce Secretary

Bush named Kellogg's CEO Carlos Gutierrez to Don Evans' vacated Commerce Secretary spot yesterday.

Quin Hillyer, over at The Corner, points out the different spins on the appointment from the NYT and AP. NYT manages to use "multi-millionaire," "$9 billion-a-year," and "corporate executive" in just the first two sentences. Impressive. Hillyer has also just been added as a new C-Logger, so check him out sometime.

But once you get past the spin about Gutierrez, you find a really great American story about a Cuban immigrant who worked his way up from cereal delivery man to CEO. Here's hoping he handles Social Security as well has he does cornflakes.
