Times-Picayune Wants Michael Brown to Head Back Down the Bridle Path

Publishing in virtual format for a largely evacuated readership, the New Orleans Times-Picayune poses the big questions being ignored in presidential flood-zone photo-ops:

We’re angry, Mr. President, and we’ll be angry long after our beloved city and surrounding parishes have been pumped dry. Our people deserved rescuing. Many who could have been were not. That’s to the government’s shame. . . .
Every official at the Federal Emergency Management Agency should be fired. Michael Brown especially. . . .No expense should have been spared. No excuses should have been voiced. Especially not one as preposterous as the claim that New Orleans couldn’t be reached.

It is the usual Wonkette policy to deliver a parting shot at the end of ann extended media quote. All we have to add in this instance is that it sounds like a good start. — HOLLY MARTINS
