It just keeps getting worse

September 5, 2005

I can’t believe I pay taxes for this kind of effort to be undertaken on my behalf. I realize finger pointing doesn’t do a damn bit of good for those in the stricken areas of the Gulf Coast, but perhaps if we can get our collective act together the next storm won’t be so bad. And don’t get me wrong – we will have another Katrina (probably many) way before we have a terrorist incident on this scale. And while we’re at it, what difference do you think there would be were this a nuclear bomb in NOLA instead of a hurricane? Same outcome – the government’s head up its ass.

Landrieu Implores President to “Relieve Unmitigated Suffering;” End FEMA’s “Abject Failures”: “‘But perhaps the greatest disappointment stands at the breached 17th Street levee. Touring this critical site yesterday with the President, I saw what I believed to be a real and significant effort to get a handle on a major cause of this catastrophe. Flying over this critical spot again this morning, less than 24 hours later, it became apparent that yesterday we witnessed a hastily prepared stage set for a Presidential photo opportunity; and the desperately needed resources we saw were this morning reduced to a single, lonely piece of equipment.”

Another good read is at Bugbash.
