Another Coloradan who won't be going to D.C.

When I ran into Daniel Young on New Year's Day, it sounded like the chef who'd brought us Diced Onions (its former home at 609 Corona Street is now occupied by Table 6), ran the Denver Press Club kitchen and also worked for Carmelo Anthony was still in the running to become the new White House executive chef. The transition team had been doing a background check just the week before, Young told me.

But on Friday, the transition team confirmed to MSNBC that the Obama's will be keeping the current White House chef, Cristeta Comerford, the first woman and the first minority (she's from the Philippines) to serve in that post. -- Patricia Calhoun
