"Brownie, You're Doing A Heck Of A Job"

-George Bush to the Administrator of the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Micheal Brown during the Hurricane Katrina fiasco.

My husband and I have been watching CNN report on the many levees being breeched along the Mississippi. They have also reported that some people living in the flood zones did not have flood insurance because their local officials (and FEMA) assured them that the levees could withstand a hundred year flood.

Fifteen minutes ago CNN took us to a FEMA news briefing where a FEMA official was waiting to make a statement. As he opened his mouth to speak my husband spoke for him, "We only found out about the flooding yesterday."
