11:47 am - The former Speaker of the House raises a good point . . .
"If we can’t respond faster than this to an event we saw coming across the Gulf for days, then why do we think we’re prepared to respond to a nuclear or biological attack?" said former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, a Republican. (quote taken from here)

Whatever one may think of Gingrich's politics, he does raise an excellent, excellent point.

To my mind, Hurrican Katrina was a dress rehearsal for the Department of Homeland Security.

Boy did they flub their lines!!!!

All I can hope if that the lessons learned in New Orleans will make things better the next time the DHS is called upon to act.

I'm not real hopeful about that though . . .

Wow, I never thought I'd share an opinion of any sort in common with Newt Gingrich.

The world truly has become a bizarre place.
