So much for the John Bryson era as the U.S. Secretary of Commerce. It began with his Senate confirmation in October and ended yesterday when he submitted his letter of resignation to President Obama, less than two weeks after the car he was driving was involved in collisions with two other vehicles near his California home.

Commerce Department officials say Bryson's neurologists concluded after initial testing that he suffered a complex partial seizure. These seizures cause abnormal electrical activity in an isolated section of the brain; a person could still perform simple tasks, doctors say, but be unable to handle more complex tasks.
