Someone's not getting his bonus this year

Breaking news: "Federal Emergency Management Agency Director Michael Brown is being removed from his role managing Hurricane Katrina relief efforts, according to the Associated Press."

Well, that's certainly not going to look good come performance review time.

The first head to roll and be stuff - many more to come... billions of tax dollars will be poorly spent.

Personally, I will say that Bush was late in offering help, but it has alot to do with those under him in the chain of command not giving him all the info. I feel like much of the local government should have had more preperation and more support withing their chains of command. Oh well, we all have opinions but I refuse to put the blame on President Bush. I will agree that there are problems that need to be resolved, but as a volunteer at a Katrina Relief center, I think blame and threats and such should wait till after this is all done and leave things alone till then. Just my opinion.

Everybody is blaming everybody and so much energy is being used to do so. I wish everyone would refocus all that energy and start helping the victims of this awful tragedy.

I think most people that talk and blame others mainly media, have no idea what they are talking about. They say there wasn't any support when all this happened, however there were over 300 National Guard waiting outside the state line ready to come in after the hurricane had passed. That's usually a suffcient # for the beginning efforts of a major hurricane. The whole levee breaking is another catastrophe and on top of an already horrendous situation.

The one thing that people really don't understand, is how hard it is to get to these areas after it's been hit
by a hurricane. There is all sorts of debris on the roads causing flat tires which causes back up, there are fallen trees blocking the roads and in some places there are no roads or bridges. Then let me point out the fact that most of the roads are now under several feet of water. It takes time to get to the people, it's a stressful situation and it's sad that people like the FEMA director are being blamed before the facts are really even investigated. Let them focus on what they need to do, we need everybodys help and then afterwards they can go blame people.

I would have thought knowing about horses would have been enough. (Though, apparently some folks weren't really happy with the job he did at IAHA.) Hmm, go figure.
