Where's Steven Galson When We Need Him?

Quick! Who is the Surgeon General and why haven't we heard from him?
It is bothersome to me that we pay some respected physician to be the spokesperson for the U.S. in matters dealing with health and no one has a clue as to where he is.
Where is the guy?

Why hasn't the press hounded the feds about his existence?
One would think that now, right now, is the time for the guy to surface and work to soothe our fears regarding H1N1. See what I mean? We're calling this virus the Swine Flu when such a term is incorrect. Using such a term is having ruinous outcomes for agri-business as well as the small farmer in your region.

I don't have a problem with Press Secretary Robert Gibbs, but I do have concerns when I hear him acting in the capacity of the Surgeon General trying to ease my woes regarding a serious issue.


  1. I couldn't agree with you more. Just to test the theory, I went to the Surgeon Generals website. It's last press release was April 6th and had nothing to do with H1N1. However, if you're looking for info. the CDC will gladly support your curiosity. Richard Besser, the acting director has been hounded by the press. Their last press release was May 3rd.

  2. I agree. The surgeon general should be front and center in a medical emergency like this one.

  3. I thrid that. And unfortunately, the republicans are holding up the confirmation of the secratary of health. It would be nice to have a authoritive voice out there to calm the crowd, and spell it out in laymans terms
