Maybe Health and Human Services Secretary Mike Leavitt and his staff are just in denial. Or maybe they don't read the papers, thus missing the sad news that Sen. Craig Thomas (R-Wyo.) died
Monday, seven months after he was diagnosed with leukemia.
Whatever the case, Leavitt's office called Thomas's office late Thursday afternoon to request a meeting with the late senator.
Needless to say, grief-stricken Thomas staffers were stunned.
