Am I missing something here? The federal preparation for and response to Katrina have been universally adjudged a complete trainwreck of no planning, no execution, incompetence, venality, and inaction.

Did Townsend come from some sort of horse show outfit? And has she just forgotten how to shovel?
I know life imitates art, but why is the model always the Marx Brothers?
