New Orleans

Some thoughts:

Blame God for the hurricane, blame Bush for the flood.

We've been trying to rebuild Iraq for two years now, what makes anyone think this administration can rebuild New Orleans?

The government is sending combat troops to keep the peace in New Orleans. How long will it be before a bunch of soldiers panic and fire into the mob? How long will it be before martial law is declared? How long will it be before unrest spreads to the entire country? Is this the tipping point?

Donald Rumsfeld is going on Letterman next week and I wonder if he is going to say that it was just the same picture of the same corpse over and over again.
