As I understand, the mission of the Department of Transportation is “to deliver the world’s leading transportation system, serving the American people and economy through the safe, efficient, sustainable, and equitable movement of people and goods.” The department is run by Secretary Pete Buttigieg, who was appointed by President Biden.
Like many of you, I had a simple question about Pete Buttigieg what experience does this man have in transportation matters? My question was relevant given the supply chain issues related to COVID and other matters where a little knowledge might help. The DoT website does not address his experience but we are reminded that he is the first “….openly gay person confirmed.” And he is married to a man and they are raising a couple of babies. I guess that he is the first person confirmed to do that, too.

The secretary’s problem is that there are serious issues on his plate and he has the “deer in the headlights” look. Or maybe I should say “gay deer in the headlights” to avoid being called homophobic.
