Debris pile becomes symbol of US agency delays

 A 30-mile (48-kilometer) scar of debris along the Texas coast stands as a festering testament to what state and local officials say is a federal agency's sluggish response to the 2008 hurricane season....FEMA, whose very name became a bitter joke after the agency's botched response to Hurricane Katrina in 2005, said it is working as fast as it can considering the complex regulations and the need to guard against fraud and waste in the use of taxpayer dollars.

Moreover, "you can't work too many people because it's just too dangerous," said Clay Kennelly, hired by FEMA to oversee the cleanup of a section of the debris pile. "And you can't just put Bubba or Skeeter out here on a dozer."

GEORGE W.

Subject: A cause for worry?

 

Rush Limbaugh has praised Obama's pick of Hillary Clinton as Secretary of State. What do you make of this?

Limbaugh calls Obama's selection of Clinton 'a brilliant stroke' CNN

I think Rush is trying to find relevance in this new Obama world and will say anything to make the news. And also to undermine the confidence that Democrat's have in Obama's choice of Hillary.

 

Or maybe Rush switched from OxyContin to Sodium Pentathol?

Well, hereís something kind of embarrassing for President Bush. This is true. This year, the White House Hanukkah cards they sent out had a Christmas tree on the front. And President Bush, very embarrassed by this. He said all the cards will be pulled and all of his Jewish friends will get a new card with a picture of the Hanukkah Bunny. - Jay Leno

Subject:$100 donation

 

Dear Lisa, For many months I have been donating money and time to Hillary, Obama, and MoveOn. I finally tried to send you $100 but was only allowed to donate $50. If you could send email notices to those who have donated in the past and give an option of donating $15 to $500 (make it very simple so we do not have to input any information other than the amount) I am sure that your financial worries will be over. We all appreciate your hard work. You made a difference in this past election and should be very proud of the work you are doing!

 

Sincerely, Chase

 

Thank you for writing, Chase.

 

I'm troubled that you weren't allowed to donate more than $50. That is the first time I have heard that from a supporter.  Anyone else have this problem?

 

I am reluctant to email my supporters asking for donations. It's the anti-spam in me.

 

Deep curtsy for your kind words and thoughts, sir.
