From the Boston Globe, via TPM, Bush Approach to Quality Disaster Management:
The federal official in charge of the bungled New Orleans rescue was fired from his last private-sector job overseeing horse shows.
Seems he has a track record of exactly the kind of failure we’re seeing here,
Brown was forced out of the position after a spate of lawsuits over alleged supervision failures.
I wondered how he could have been unaware of the folks at the Convention Center. He meant to say there were no horses. This is absofuckinglkutely criminal!
