Good Morning Gentle Readers,
Contrary to many media reports, most of us realize that GWB didn't conjure up Katrina with his home chemistry set (oh come on, that picture IS funny). OTOH, some of my friends and readers will enjoy this for entirely different reasons (yep, I toldja he don't care squat about black people). The rest will send me scathing emails. Please don't fire me.
There is plenty of incompetence and blame to go around but the lesson here is that government is very good at mucking things up. It isn't a question of having a different mayor, or a different governor, or a different president, although that may have helped. While effective leadership is important, the government can never match the efforts of the private sector. Here are 155 reason why that's true.
As Ever, TWC
