"Griffin, who was NASA administrator from April 2005-January 2009, is being considered for employment as an "eminent scholar and tenured professor in the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at" UAH. "

Editor's note: I wonder what the folks at Marshall think about this?

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.
