Congress has released its first report of what went wrong with Katrina and everyone got slopped by the various failures from President Bush on down to Mayor Ray 'Chocolate City' Nagin. Perhaps for once the American taxpayers got their money's worth out of these hearings because such august members like Sen. Harry Reid were boycotting it while Democrats who were affected like Rep. Gene Taylor [D-MS] were involved. Reminds me, the only time before Gulf War I, the UN actually authorized military force was because the USSR was boycotting the UNSC so it was the UN that fought the North Korean invaders. I think I see a pattern.
Today was Valentines Day, one of only four days in a year where you will see a grown man publicly clutch a cute stuffed teddy bear. Hope everyone had a grand time.
