A 10 A.M. day & the day Nancy leaves for N.Y. for about 10 days. Started the day talking about Wash. Post poll showing great support for the Navy, et al in the gulf tragedy. Also speculated on possible replacements for Ed Meese. Some whose names have been mentioned took themselves out of the running—Bill Smith, Paul Laxalt, Libby Dole. An energy & water bill (appropriation) coming down to me. It’s supposed to be alright & eligible for a signing ceremony—but we dont have final word yet. Sen. passed the plant closing bill 72 to 23. It will go to the House next week.
