THAT'LL SOUND GOOD AT THE DEBATES:

New health secretary is first Haitian-American agency head (DAVID ROYSE, Sep 15, 2005, AP)

Dr. M. Rony Francois will become the state's new secretary of health, the first Haitian-American to head a Florida state agency, Gov. Jeb Bush announced Thursday.

Bush named Francois to replace Dr. John Agwunobi, who was nominated by President Bush to be assistant secretary of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.

Francois, an assistant professor at the University of South Florida's College of Public Health in Tampa, was born in Haiti and came to the United States in 1979 to pursue an education.

I'll bet Francois didn't want or need affirmative action either. Amazing how West Indians, Haitians and Africans have no trouble accessing the system and becoming Americans.
