Editor's Update: I just got heard from Keith in Katmandu and he had this comment on Mike's new job; "Keith Cowing suggests that this will give him a front row seat as the Ares program is redesigned."

Editor's Update: Looks like Mike's salary will be a nice $350K
Frank's note: is it just me that wishes Mike Griffin would go the way of Sean O'Keefe and Dan Goldin and just go quietly into retirement? I have to confess I'm just sick of the guy and the mess he has made of the VSE.
