When The Going Gets Tough...

the Bush administration passes the buck.

In the tried and true method of Rove and the rest, FEMA director Michael Brown has passed the responsibility for the plight of the New Orleans hurricane victims to the victims themselves.

Shame on him. The majority of the people still in New Orleans are there because they couldn't get out of town. It's estimated that more than 100,000 people in the city don't own vehicles and rely upon public transportation. Over half of the children in the city live below the poverty line. They simply couldn't afford to get out. But hey, who needs reality, right? It's easier to spin when you don't have to face the facts.

Well I say, "Shame on you Michael Brown. Shame on you and the rest of your agency for trying to pass the blame for your failures onto the victims. They've suffered enough already. They don't need to bear the blame for your ineptitude on top of that."

Contact FEMA and let them know that you won't stand for this. Let them know that the behavior of their director is unacceptable and shameful.

A little moment of Zen for your weekend: The kissfans went out to eat this evening and the restaurant we were in was showing Fox News. As I watched the broadcast without sound, I was paying close attention to what was being printed on the screen. In their coverage of Katrina, one of the segments sported the title "Worse Then 9/11?" I think that pretty much sums it all up, right there. What a bunch of losers!

Have a great weekend!
