NASAWATCH has clarified the House schedule I received yesterday and the
reference to Gregory as ACTING Administrator.
Editor's note:Since this hearing is after Sean O'Keefe will have said
his goodbyes, Fred Gregory is the Acting Administrator by virtue of his
current position as Deputy. Gregory will continue to act in that
capacity even after a nominee is announced. Given the pace of scheduling
confirmation hearings, he will likely be in this position for a number
of weeks - perhaps longer. As such, there is really not too much to read
into the title of "Acting" Administrator. A name could be announced in
days - or weeks - and yet Gregory would still serve in this capacity.

Actually, that wasn't really a clarification, it was more a case of NASAWatch reversing itself, since it was that website that initially speculated that the reference to Gregory as "acting administrator" actually _meant_ something.
