Really Really Bad
The situation in New Orleans is just terrible. Worse parts of the bible bad. FEMA, the federal government, and the Bush administration are not looking like angels at the moment. In news interviews yesterday, both the head of FEMA and Homeland security didn't seem to have a clue that there were thousands of people with no food or water at the New Orleans convention center. That the head of FEMA is a boob should not come as a surprise. Craigorian Chant reader Roy makes the point that Convention Center is all on one big dock could have been evacuated with ships. Clearly there has been a massive failure to deal with this. Now Bush has rolled into town to try and address the critism. He's striking a very different tone calling the responce so far "Not acceptable." No kidding.
