  •  Last night on Nightline this was discussed (none)
    The gentleman being interviewed (my apologies for not remembering his name) was an elected official from outside New Orleans, LA.  

    He was upset because the request WAS made, however not in the correct manner, or using the correct form, or procedure. I kid you not!

    The gentleman was livid, because he said no one coached the LA Governor on the "proper way to make the request" as they had evidently done for the Governors of Alabama and Mississippi. His point was "why should Gov. Blanco have to worry about the proper procedure or form once she declared this a national disaster and asked for help"?  

    The insanity of this was hard to fathom for Ted Koppel, and everyone watching, I'm sure.  It was for me.
