From the Seattle Post Intelligencer:
FDA chief won't lead Canada drug study
The Bush administration, responding to complaints from lawmakers, decided not to go ahead with the appointment of the government's food and drug regulator to lead a government study of importing drugs from Canada.

Tommy Thompson, health and human services secretary, told the House Energy and Commerce Committee on Wednesday that he was aware of the criticism of his decision last month to name Mark McClellan as chairman of a commission that is to report to Congress by December.
