This morning I'm off to Cap City for an Ocean Leadership Public Policy Forum on the Hill. Senator Landrieu is set to deliver the keynote address and speakers include Vice Admiral Lautenbacher (Administrator of NOAA), and Rita Colwell (former Director of the National Science Foundation).

While it's a little early in season for the cherry blossoms, I'm looking forward to catching up with old friends across agencies and around town. There's also a certain rumor about oceans and the current administration that I hope to validate so stay tuned... Regardless of what I learn, I'm glad members are engaging in today's ocean policy panels and I encourage readers to suggest questions and topics for discussion.
