Did anyone consider that his experience with horses was the reason Michael Brown was put in charge of FEMA? After all, if people in need are always waiting for the cavalry to come over the hill, who better to put in charge of the the agency meant to save them than a man with a decade of equine-related program activities?

Or maybe W’s purported fear of horses ties into the reason he wasn’t in closer contact those first couple of days.

Many thanks to Digby, Driftglass, and The Poor Man for links this week. Special thanks to onegoodmove for an extra posting of the Mayor Nagin interview from last week’s “Nightline.” It’s always good to know a few more people are reading.
