I’m not for Czars. But now that we have an Ebola Czar, I need to say something about the choice of Rob Klain.
You may have seen the clever Holiday Inn Express commercials where somebody is mistaken for an expert in some field or endeavor – doctor, dentist, pilot, Ebola expert. When asked about his or her qualifications, they say, “No, but I did stay in a Holiday Inn Express last night.”
