Something Smells Fishy in Louisiana...

Things are really beginning to smell in Louisiana, in more ways than one. Hurricane Katrina has probably uncovered some of the most surprising finds in governmental mismanagement. More mismanagement within Louisiana will be brought to light as the coming weeks and months unfold. Hopefully some needed changes will come out of all of this.

These are interesting stories:

First of all, did you know that the ‘new’ New Orleans doesn’t want to have their poor citizens come back? ”Old-Line Families Plot the Future” And they call President Bush a racist?

Did you know that the city of New Orleans wouldn’t let the Red Cross go to the Superdome with their provisions? Update: Red Cross Says "We Were Kept From Superdome By State" Was this Bush’s fault?

Louisiana has received the most funds, of any state in the union, for Corps civil works. How does $1.9 billion dollars sound to you? The Louisiana officials were effective in getting most of those funds diverted to projects other than flood control and levees. Do you think there was some political maneuvering here? ”Army's engineers spent millions on Louisiana projects labeled as pork” hmmmmm…

Finally, the media is beginning to realize a few things on their own. Or maybe they have been reading my blog? ”Blame Amid the Tragedy
Gov. Blanco and Mayor Nagin failed their constituents”
There’s nothing like using common sense and reasoning. *sigh*
