Brownie, we hardly knew ye. It was reported today that our man in Louisiana, FEMA director and big crybaby Michael Brown, tendered his resignation. Brown's quitting follows directly on the heels of Operation Huge Embarrassing Failure, also known as the federal government's response to Hurricane Katrina.
Personally, I respect Brown's decision to step aside. Now is the time for our government to move forward in the recovery process, placing the needs of its affected citizens above mere political concerns, producing, finally, a new Crescent City which will serve as a model of good governance and the spirit of free enterprise. Whoops -- spoke too soon.
