FEMA Has Hands Full

"City's levee system called sound, but Louisiana still faces risks; Officials not ready to declare success" by Larry Margasak, Associated Press | September 2, 2008

WASHINGTON - Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff, speaking from Baton Rouge, said he can't remember a time when FEMA was juggling so many major disasters at once.

In addition to Gustav, FEMA is also dealing with Hurricane Hanna, more than a dozen major wildfires across the country, flooding in eastern and northern Florida, and heavy precipitation predicted later this week over the panhandle and southern coast of Alaska.


And yet, those fires and floods have been invisible in the pages of my puke War Daily.

And whatever happened to the MIDWEST?! Remember all the spring floods? That got dropped right quick, didn't it? While the shit MSM runs shit stories in their shit sheets.
