    FEMA to Chicago: No thanks!

    (I thought the diarist was the one saying no thanks.)

    Otherwise, important point to make and keep making -- that help was offered from around the country and refused by an incompetent, arrogant fed agency.

    In another example just to the north of Chicago, more than 100 Wisconsin medical personnel -- doctors, nurses, etc. -- immediately offered to drop everything and head down to help.  But they still are waiting for the go-ahead, where to go, etc. (per the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel this morning).

    Multiply that by many offers from every state, I would bet -- and that means many thousands of medical personnel alone made offers to help, in addition to many others with many skills and supplies needed.

    That this COUNTRY and its CITIZENS can come through in a crisis, no question in my mind.  

    It is the WHITE HOUSE and its lackeys in the federal government that fell apart and failed.
