Topic - British-born climber appointed U.S. Secretary of Interior

I don't think anyone else has mentioned it, so someone might be interested in the fact that the newly appointed U.S. Secretary of the Interior, Sally Jewell, is said to be a pretty experienced mountaineer as well as being British born (although moved to the US when very young). She's also the former head of REI, the huge US outdoor coop chain.

The American Alpine Club at least seem strongly supportive of her as Obama's pick:
