Fire Them All
FEMA Chief Waited Until After Storm Hit
Hurricane Katrina had already struck the Gulf Coast before asking his boss to dispatch 1,000 Homeland Security employees to the region — and gave them two days to arrive, according to internal documents.We know how to stuff those "duties" up the duty hole, don't we?
Michael Brown, director of the Federal Emergency Management Agency, sought the approval from Homeland Security Secretary Mike Chertoff roughly five hours after Katrina made landfall on Aug. 29. Brown said that among duties of these employees was to "convey a positive image" about the government's response for victims.
And CBS, while you're bashing the Democratic governor and mayor of New Orleans, let's hear a little bashing for the Republican governor of Mississippi. The man has like disappeared from TV.
Good evening, friends. Out to paint again today, but the camera is in the car and I'm in my nighty and fluffy slippers. Besides, it's just more boats and what looks like an evil car. If you don't draw every day, it's like you lose it. Things are changing at the harbor. Boats are leaving the water and sitting in the parking lot -- just like cars!
Have to renew my driver's license in the next few days, re-up at the print studio, etc. etc. With luck it will rain, so I won't miss a painting day.
