Last week DHS appointed Douglas Hoelscher to be Executive Director of the Homeland Security Advisory Committees. The National Journal reported on the appointment on Friday, in an article that should serve as a minor warning to all twentysomethings with greater political aspirations who are active online:
Hoelscher declined to be interviewed for this article; a Homeland Security spokeswoman said that he was on jury duty. But in a personal profile that Hoelscher created for the Web site Friendster.com, he offered some personal insights. He listed William Bennett’s The Death of Outrage: Bill Clinton and the Assault on American Ideals among his favorite books and wrote, “I’m usually fairly quiet in a group setting — I am not a talker but a pretty good listener.”
