  •  here's a thought (none)
    Maybe the administration just doesn't want to run the risk that a DART spokesperson will inadvertently mention that the coordination and support in Sri Lanka after the tsunami were actually better than what's going on now on the Gulf coast?

    Once you get sufficiently good enough at making bad decisions, future bad decisions don't really even need a rationale; they flow freely out of the cesspool of previous bad decisions.

    •  A real dilemma for me (none)
      Call me unfeeling, but I have not yet decided how much money I ought to ante up for Hurricane relief. It's not that I don't think it's needed, it's just that I'm afraid it will end up in Iraq, or Halliburton's budget. Even giving to the Red Cross (which is probably the safest bet) may simply mean that your government can continue to starve FEMA, subsidize the wealthy, restrict services to the poor, and spend more money degrading my planet.
