Request Denied

"What strikes me is the utter lack of coordination in the search and rescue," Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine, told a panel of four front-line officials involved in the Katrina response. "Don't you all talk to one another?"

FEMA continues to defy the brain's ability to process stupidity.

And as long as we're on the subject of stupidity - I wrote about this once, but since the MSM has finally caught up with the story:

Louisiana officials did virtually nothing to prepare to evacuate poor, sick or elderly people as required under a state emergency plan adopted months before Hurricane Katrina hit, according to newly released documents.

State Transportation and Development Secretary Johnny B. Bradberry told Senate investigators that he was assigned the task in April, months before the Aug. 29 storm. But his department had no buses or drivers to execute the mission.

"We have done nothing to fulfill this responsibility," Bradberry said, according to a transcript of a Dec. 21 deposition obtained by The Washington Post. "We put no plans in place to do any of this."

Plenty of blame to be shared by all. Isn't that special?

    I'm glad that you saw this too! The proverbial ship is sinking, and all the rats are starting to drown. What gets me is; when will it occur to everyone else that the very same thing could happen anywhere in the U.S.?

    Our government is run by Lawyers, while Chinese government is run by Technologists. Therefore we have no understanding of global dynamics and hence messing up in many places like Disaster Rescue, Relief and Recovery; Anti-Terrorism, Outsourcing all good jobs, Old people taking 14 pills a day, students learning little, inability to connect the dots....
