WHICH KEAN COMES CLEAN? Check out these two quotes by 9/11 commission chairman (and former New Jersey governor, who used to say “New Jersey and you–perfect together” in TV ads with a New England accent thicker than Teddy Kennedy’s) Thomas Kean:

“We made a conscious decision, and part of it was under strong pressure from the [victims’] families, to make this commission as transparent and as visible as possible.”–9/11 commission chairman Thomas Kean on commission members’ repeated TV appearances, quoted in the New York Times, April 15

“People ought to stay out of our business.”–Kean, on allegations that commissioner Jamie Gorelick has a conflict of interest, quoted in the Washington Post, April 15
