A funny thing happened at the Interior Department last week. The outgoing secretary, Dirk Kempthorne, opened his farewell address to employees with a slide show. Our sources say it was a remarkable presentation: about 600 slides, each picturing the distinguished secretary, many of them taken at a national park.

"Slide after slide after slide," a longtime employee said. "It was special. That's all I should say."
