Dear Mr. President

Dear Mr. President,

Thank you for appointing completely unqualified people to run FEMA. Nothing makes me more confident to see that four years after 9/11 that we, as a nation, are totally unprepared to handle major emergencies. It also helps us see that all your rhetoric for the last four years was really just a way to get re-elected and had nothing at all to do with the safety of the average American. You're doing a heck of a job.

From a New York Times article: "The president, long reluctant to fire subordinates, came to a belated recognition that his administration was in trouble for the way it had dealt with the disaster, many of his supporters say. One moment of realization occurred on Thursday of last week when an aide carried a news agency report from New Orleans into the Oval Office for him to see.

The report was about the evacuees at the convention center, some dying and some already dead. Mr. Bush had been briefed that morning by his homeland security secretary, Michael Chertoff, who was getting much of his information from Mr. Brown and was not aware of what was occurring there. The news account was the first that the president and his top advisers had heard not only of the conditions at the convention center but even that there were people there at all."

Completely fucking incompetent.


"Three Decades Of Rickey Because we should always respect our elders, I feel obligated to point out that Rickey Henderson recently completed his 30th season of professional baseball. Henderson, who began his pro career in 1976 with the Boise A's, suited up for the San Diego Surf Dawgs of the independent Golden Baseball League this season. The 46-year-old hit .270, reached base at a .456 clip, stole 16 bases in 18 attempts and hit five homers for the league champs."
