Gut Check Thing of the Year Nominee: Secretary of Health and Human Services Michael Leavitt




As part of our year-end celebration, Gut Check is highlighting the people, places and things that have made the blog's first year (well, seven months, actually, but who's counting?) so much fun. There are five nominees for the inaugural Gut Check Thing of the Year award. I'll announce the winner on Friday.

Secretary of Health and Human Services Michael Leavitt


Pros: Leavitt's visit to the Bridgeton Schnucks allowed Gut Check its first pretense of actual journalism. He even answered our question!

Cons: That Leavitt was in the news so often this year wasn't good for him -- or any of us.
