One Week of Tragedy

It’s been one week since Katrina hit Louisiana and Mississippi hard. I did not know anybody who was affected by Katrina, but everyone has seen the disgraceful federal, state, and local reaction to the disaster.

The most anger-provoking scene I’ve seen this past week was FEMA head Michael Brown acting like a deer caught in the headlights when presented with the ever more distressing reports of the misery and death of Gulf Coast residents. He is a typical party apparatchik – clueless and totally unqualified for the job. He should resign immediately.

We have to realize that this administration is fighting two wars. We can win the War On Terror, but there is no way in hell Bush can win the War On Our Envrionment. His policies can only ensure more Katrinas in our future. We’re going way past the 9/11 body count on this one. This time, nobody can say that they didn’t see this one coming:
