My friend and benafactor CWY is mixing apples and oranges today, creating a false equivlancy between the Katrina performances of Michael Brown, the FEMA head and Karen Blanco, the governor of Lousiana.

What CWY doesn't seem to understand is this: Blanco wasn't hired to lead an emergency manmagement agency. She was elected governor of a state.

So if she was a little off-balance during the emergancy that's ok:A governor isn't chosen (and doesn't promise) to be a whiz at dealing with disasters. That's one of the many reasons why FEMA is so important.

The head of FEMA, on the other hand, is supposed to know what to do during an emergancy: Brown didn't.
