Never mind the levees, here comes the creme brule
From Making Light we see that Michael Brown had Katrina reservations. No. Not those kind of reservations.:
What was Michael Brownâ€™s reaction when the FEMA offical on the ground in New Orleans informed him that â€œthe situation is past criticalâ€ and that evacuees had no food or water and â€œestimates are many will die within hoursâ€?
â€¦ Brownâ€™s press secretary wrote colleagues to complain that the FEMA director needed more time to eat dinner at a Baton Rouge restaurant that evening. â€œHe needs much more that (sic) 20 or 30 minutes,â€ wrote Brown aide Sharon Worthy.
â€œWe now have traffic to encounter to go to and from a location of his choise (sic), followed by wait service from the restaurant staff, eating, etc. Thank you.â€
I bet he didn’t even have time for a cappuccino.
Oh, the humanity…
