Lawrence M. Small resigns...

We discussed this story not too long ago about the amount of money that Small was claiming was valid expenses as a part of his job as the director of the Smithsonian Institution. Today's Washington Post reports he resigned.
Small submitted his resignation on Saturday. The regents met on Sunday and accepted it.

"There were some regrets" among the regents, Sant said, "but we had to weigh that against the contrary current feeling among some in the community about Secretary Small. . . . It would be hard to ignore those when things were swirling around you."

Small was not present for the announcement. Sant said the departing secretary would not receive a severance package.

What? No "goodie bag" for the road?

Perhaps he felt that he already had his fill...

Nah! Greed is infinite. . .
