    It wasn't '2 days ago' - this was just last night. Friday midnight was 24 hrs ago

        needs backup. Hiring Witt sounds like the setting up of a shadow gov't since the 'real' one can't fucking handle anything

          and don't buy into the blame game of Fox News, et al, badmouthing the state and local officials.

          The governor has the rest of the state to keep moving forward -- even more important now in such a poor state which has lost its major economic center.

          Witt is an expert, the former director of FEMA when it worked under Clinton, and the governor has made a good hire of a guy who can focus on rescue, relief, and rebuilding of that economic center.

          Or would you have her neglect the rest of her state the way that her major city was neglected by the feds?

    •  I don't think that's true (none)
      Right now it's just past Sunday, midnight. Saturday, midnight was 24 hours ago. Friday, midnight was 48 hours ago.

    •  Can you please (none)
      explain this away for me? " Louisiana disaster plan, pg 13, para 5 , dated 01/00 'The primary means of hurricane evacuation will be personal vehicles. School and municipal buses, government-owned vehicles and vehicles provided by volunteer agencies may be used to provide transportation for individuals who lack transportation and require assistance in evacuating'..." http://junkyardblog.net/archives/week_2005_08_28.html#004752
